Abstract: The present investigation was carried out at Horticulture Research Centre, Patharchatta and Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, Uttarakhand during February, 2013 to July, 2013. The experiment was conducted to study the effect of Plant bio-regulators viz., Gibberellic Acid (GA3), Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA) and Benzyl Adenine (BA) on fruit drop, cracking, fruit yield and physico-chemical properties of litchi cv. Rose Scented. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with 10 treatments and 3 replications. The results indicated that among all treatments, GA3 (50 ppm) and NAA (50 ppm) had significant effect on fruit drop, cracking, fruit yield and physico-chemical characters of litchi. The application of GA3 @ 50 ppm was found to be more effective in minimizing fruit drop, fruit cracking and titratable acidity and increasing fruit retention, fruit size, fruit weight, fruit volume, ascorbic acid, total sugar, reducing sugar and yield.
