|Abstract:||The experiment was conducted to study the effects of micronutrients on yield and quality of onion seeds Cv. Baswant-780. The treatments were 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 % borax; 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 % copper sulphate, 0.5,1.0 and 2.0 % ferrous sulphate; 0.2, 0.4 and 0.6 % manganese sulphate and 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 % zinc sulphate. All the micronutrients were sprayed at 30 days and 45 days after planting of onion bulbs. The observations on different plant characters such as height of the plant, number of leaves per plant, days required for 50 per cent flowering, diameter of umbel, number of umbels per plant, weight of seeds per umbel, 1000 seed weight, seed yield per plant, seed yield per plot, seed yield per hectare and germination percentage were recorded. IV Abstract cond S.P. Khalate The study revealed that in general, the spraying of micronutrients improved the growth of the plant. Also the spraying of icronutrients helped in advancing flowering, increased the diameter of umbel and number of umbels per plant. In general, it was observed that higher the concentrations of micronutrients used, better were the results. The zinc treatments were comparitively better than the other micronutrient treatments. The treatments 1.0 % ZnSO4, 0.5 % ZnSO4,1.0 % CuSO4 and 0.6 % MnSO4 increased the seed yields significantly over control. The spraying of micronutrients improved the seed germination percentage. The 1.0 % zinc sulphate treatment was the superior most treatment for all the characters studied including the onion seed yield.|
