Abstract: The present experiment entitled “Response of foliar spray of different chemicals on yield and quality of Dashehari mango under ultra-high density plantation” was conducted during the year 2015-16 at Regional Horticultural Research Station, ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design and replicated thrice. Nine treatments comprising urea (1, 1.5 and 2 %), KNO3 (1 and 2 %), novel organic liquid fertilizer (1 and 2%) and ethephon 200mgl-1 along with one control and they were sprayed twice, first fortnight of October and November. The effect of these treatments on different parameters of yield and quality were recorded and analyzed statistically. The results of present investigation revealed that the number of fruits, average fruit weight and yield (kg/tree) were significantly the maximum in KNO3 @ 2% treatment. Untreated trees of mango produced minimum yield and its attributes as compared to other treatments. In case of quality parameters, foliar application of KNO3 @ 2% treatment improved the quality parameters like shelf life, TSS, total sugar, non reducing sugar, reducing sugar, fruit firmness, ascorbic acid and minimum titrable acidity in Dashehari mango under ultra high density plantation. On the basis of results obtained in present investigation, it can be summarized that foliar application of KNO3 @ 2% at first fortnight of October and November, can be utilized for enhancing yield and quality in Dashehari mango under ultra high density plantation.
