Abstract:

A random sample of 20 pods were collected from each treatment to estimate the quality parameters. The treatments comprised of Five levels of nitrogen, i,e., Control, 100,150,200 and 250g N per plant. Nitrogen was applied in the form of urea in two splits i.e., I split at 3 months after planting seedlings. II split at 50% flowering. Phosphorus @100g in the form of Single super phosphate and potassium @ 50g/plant in the form of murate of potash were applied along with I split of nitrogen.  Nitrogen has significantly influenced the quality parameters of pods. Pods from different treatments showed higher values for pulp content, TSS, Total sugars and reducing sugars over control except ascorbic acid. The promotery effect of nitrogen was observed up to 200g N/plant only.  Nitrogen @ 200 g per plant is optimum for improving the quality parameters of drumstick.
