ABSTRACT

Ber is known as the King of Arid fruits and is rich in vitamin C, A, and B complexes. In this study, two years of experimentation with the four (04) cultivars of the Ber for morphological and biochemical attributes were evaluated. Different treatments such as: T1: control; T2: (500 g NP + 300 g P2O5 plant-1), zinc sulphate spray (0.3%); T3: (500 g NPK+ 300 g P2O5 plant-1), zinc sulphate spray (0.5%); T4: (500 g NP + 300 g P2O5 plant-1), zinc sulphate spray (0.7%). Each cultivar shows a different response to the different amendments due to its genetic makeup. The morphological attributes showed good performance with the application of treatment T3 as compared to other treatments. Similarly, the biochemical attributes showed excellent performance with the treatment T3. The response of each trait to foliar application of zinc nutrient was somehow different in many trait indices. Moreover, an extremely positive correlation was observed among the agronomic traits and biochemical traits. The cultivar’s performance for Delhi White was good as compared to the other cultivars in both years.
