Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to assess the influence of foliar application of Benzyl adenine and nutrients on growth and yield of transplanted ginger under hill zone of Karnataka at ZAHRS, Mudigere during the year 2019-20 with twelve treatments and three replications in Randomized Complete Block Design. Results of the study reveals that, among the different treatments studied, the clumps treated with 70 per cent RDF (NPK) as soil application + 30 per cent RDF (NPK) as foliar spray + micronutrients spray at 0.25 per cent each recorded maximum pseudostem height (68.18 cm) and girth (1.10 cm), total chlorophyll content (57.09 SPAD units), rhizome length and breadth (18.08 and 17.54 cm, respectively), primary finger length (11.78 cm) and circumference (7.38 cm) and yield per clump (913.13 g), per plot (5.79 kg) and per hectare (26.80 t). While, the maximum number of tillers per clump (21.73), number of leaves per clump (233.30), leaf length (26.33 cm) and leaf breadth (2.63 cm) were recorded in the clumps supplied with 100 per cent RDF (NPK) as soil application along with BA spray at 75 ppm.
