An experiment was conducted to find out the suitable micronutrient or their combinations for foliar sprays in brinjal at the Horticulture Research Farm, R.A.K College of Agriculture, Sehore (M.P). The experiment comprised of total eight treatments micronutrients and control. The experiment was laid out in randomized completely block design with three replications. Application of RDF and foliar spray of micronutrients treatment T8 (RDF+ Borax (0.2%) + FeSO4 (0.5%) + ZnSO4 (0.5%) recorded significantly growth (viz., plant height, number of leaves plant-1, number of branches plant-1, leaf area plant-1 and leaf area index) and phonological parameters (i.e. earliest first flowering, first fruit set and first picking and highest number of flowers cluster-1 and number of fruits cluster-1). All the growth and phenological attributes of brinjal viz., plant height (82.67 cm),no. of leaves (173.27), no of branches (12.60), leaf area (2431.12 cm2), leaf area index (0.540), and days to 1st flower initiation (37.33), days to first fruit set (42.33), days to 1st picking (58.33), number of clusters/plant (3.6), no. of flowers per cluster (5.2), number of fruits/ cluster (3.3) were recorded best in treatment T8 (RDF+ Borax (0.2%) + FeSO4 (0.5%) + ZnSO4 (0.5%).
