Abstract

magnesium concentrations” were conducted at Horticulture Research Farm, The University of Agriculture
Peshawar. Calcium at the rate of (0%, 0.15%, 0.30% and 0.45 %,) and Magnesium at the rate of (0%, 0.04%,
0.08% and 0.12%) were applied as foliar spray using Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications.
Maximum Number of flowers cluster-1 (5.96), number of fruits cluster-1
(4.45), fruit weight (79.04 g), fruits kg-1
(12.83), total yield (ton ha-1
) (22.83) was observed in plants with 0.30% Calcium application and number of
defectives fruits (143.73) were observed in plants with control fertilizers condition. Similarly, maximum number
of flowers cluster-1 (6.34), number of fruits cluster-1 (4.57) fruit weight (77.01 g), fruits kg-1
(12.68), total yield ton
ha-1
(21.39) were observed in plants with 0.08% Magnesium application and number of defectives fruits (140.94)
were observed in plants with control fertilizers condition. Among various treatments used Calcium and
Magnesium at the rate of 0.30% and 0.08 % showed better result in most of the growth and yield parameters.
