Field experiment was carried out during 2020-2021 to study the effect of amino acids and silicon on flowering, fruit characters and yield of pomegranate cv. Phule Bhagwa Super in a randomized block design with seven treatments which were replicated three times. The treatments were Potassium silicate 0.5% (T1), Potassium silicate 1.0 % (T2), Amino acids 150 ppm (T3), Amino acids 200ppm (T4), Amino acids 250 ppm (T5), Water spray (T6), Absolute control (T7). Foliar sprays of each treatment except T7 were applied twice. The first spray was taken one month before water holding for inducing hasta bahar (hasta flowering) and second spray was taken15 days after initial growth, but before flowering. The results revealed that all the parameters studied were significantly influenced due to foliar spraying of different concentrations of potassium silicate and amino acids. The treatment T5 (amino acids 250 ppm) recorded maximum number of hermaphrodite flowers/ tree (147), sex ratio (33.3), fruit set(67.8%), number of fruit per tree (99.7), fruit weight (g) and yield per tree (35.3 kg) whereas the treatment T4 (amino acids 200 ppm) recorded highest fruit weight (302.8g). The results suggested that spraying amino acids is more effective as compared to silicon as it produced more number of hermaphrodite flower, fruit set, fruit weight number of fruits per plant and yield per plant.
