A field experiment was carried out, at the Vegetable Research Farm, RHRS of the NAU, Navsari during Summer 2020 on cv. AVCP 1. The experiment was conducted in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications, which included 13 treatments. The results revealed that application of CCC 300 μl l-1 recorded higher values for quality and yield parameters namely, chlorophyll content of leaf at second (1676.22 mg 100 g-1)and sixth picking (1656.18 mg 100 g-1) and chlorophyll content of pod at second (116.66 mg 100 g-1) and sixth picking (116.34 mg 100 g-1), pod yield (t ha-1) (10.87 tonne), marketable pod yield plant-1(0.160 kg) and marketable pod yield (t ha-1) (10.44 tonne), whereas protein content of immature seed (%), moisture content of pod (%), crude fibre (%), TSS (oB), Harvest Index (%) and number of pickings were found non-significant. From the economic point of view and based on green pod yield, for securing maximum return, foliar application of CCC 300 μl l-1was found superior with highest B:CR value of 2.2 followed by T11 (B:CR value of 2.1).
