Abstract

A field experiment to ascertain the effect of micronutrients (boron, manganese, iron, copper, molybdenum and zinc) on growth and yield of cabbage var. ‘Golden Acre’ was conducted during rabi 2001 and kharif 2002. The study revealed that the foliar application of Zn @ 100 ppm gave maximum plant height during both the seasons, whereas maximum values for plant spread, number of non-wrapper leaves, head diameter, head weight and head yield were recorded with foliar application of mixture of all nutrients @ 100 ppm during both the seasons followed by multiplex.
