Abstract:
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) belongs to family Apiaceae is a native of Mediterranean region and is extensively grown in India. In order to study the effect of foliar spray and soil application of micronutrients on yield and quality of coriander the present investigation was undertaken. The highest yield of 11.18 t ha-1 of coriander was obtained with the application of 0.5 per cent ZnSO4 through foliar spray along with 100 per cent RDF (T5) with highest chlorophyll content of 2.54 mg g-1 and ascorbic acid content of 524.79 mg 100 g-1 of coriander. However, the yield of coriander (10.56 t ha-1) with the soil application of ZnSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1 along with 100 per cent RDF (T6) which is at par with the treatment T5 had significantly superior β-carotene content of 2502.12 µg 100 g-1 in coriander. Thus, the application of ZnSO4 @ 0.5 per cent foliar spray along with 100 per cent RDF or the soil application of ZnSO4 @ 20 kg ha-1 along with 100 per cent RDF to coriander crop significantly increase the yield, influence the nutrient content and nutrient uptake by the plant, the soil properties and available nutrient status of the soil and improve the quality of coriander in terms of chlorophyll, ascorbic acid and β-carotene content
