Effect of plant Vitalizers on flowering, fruiting behaviour and yield of tomato cultivar Hisar Arun
Author(s): Praveen Kumar and Sewa Lal
Abstract: The study was conducted at vegetable Research Farm of Department of vegetable science, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during the spring-summer season of 2001 and 2002. In the present experiment four levels each of plant vitalizers (Anupaan + Anupaan R), were applied by four methods along with control treatment on tomato plants to find out their effect on flowering, fruiting behaviour and yield. The results of the study clearly indicated that flowering and fruiting behaviour of the plant was influenced by the Anupaan + Anupaan R. There was early flowering and fruit ripening in plants receiving the higher doses of Anupaan + Anupaan R when applied in soil + foliar combination. These plant vitalizers also increased number of fruits per plant. The early flowering, heavy fruiting and early ripening of fruits in plants receiving plant vitalizers might be due to commencement of early reproductive phase in plants under the influential effects of Anupaan + Anupaan R. As number and fresh weights of leaves increased more photosynthates were assimilated and consequently, transferred to the storage organ i.e. ovary and as a result fruit developed early. Fruit yield per plant and per hectare were significantly increased by higher doses of these plant vitalizers when applied as soil + foliar application. The promoting effects of plant vitalizers (Anupaan + Anupaan R) on flowering and fruiting behaviour of tomato plants and fruit yield. It is interesting to note that the application of Anupaan + Anupaan R at 50% more than suggested dose either applied in soil, foliar, root dipping or soil + foliar was found beneficial as compared to other treatments for yield attributing parameters.
