An experiment was carried out to study the effect of foliar application of micronutrients on nutrient content of gerbera under protected condition at the Center of Excellence on Protected Cultivation, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur, Chhattisgarh, during the year 2015-16. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with thirteen treatment combinations with three replications. The treatment comprised of various combination of micronutrients at different concentrations. With respect to macronutrients the maximum leaf N content (2.37 %), P content (0.28 %) and K content (2.45%), was obtained with in case of micronutrients Zn content (98.43 ppm), Mn content (99.53ppm) and Fe content (291.97ppm), were recorded with foliar application of [ZnSO4 (0.2%) + MnSO4 (0.2%) + FeSO4 (0.1%)].

Keywords: Foliar Application, Gerbera, Leaf Content, Micronutrients.
