Abstract: The present experiment was conducted to study the effect of chemicals viz., ethephon (400 ppm), KNO3 (10g/l), TIBA (1g/l), SADH (400 ppm), paclobutrazol (20ml/tree), KH2PO4 (10g/l) and cincturing (3mm deep and 3mm wide) on flowering, fruit yield and shelf life of litchi cv. Rose Scented. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with 8 treatments and 3 replications.The results obtained indicated that among all the treatments ethephon (400 ppm) and TIBA (1g/l) had significant effect on flowering and fruit yield of litchi. The application of ethephon @ 400 ppm was found to be more effective in advancing the flowering by 6 days, maximum number of panicles (356 panicles/tree) and highest numbers of fruits/panicle. In other treatments, application of TIBA (1g/l) increased the fruit set percentage (63.42%) and fruit retention percentage (20.10%) with minimum fruit drop percentage (60.56%) in litchi. Finally, average yields; 58.30 kg/tree and 5.83 t/ha were also improved with the application of ethephon @ 400 ppm.
