Abstract: The present experiment was carried out at Drumstick plantation of ICAR, KVK- Vijayapura-1 during June, 2023 to January, 2024 to find out the effect of Brassinosteroids on Drumstick. Five treatments were employed viz., T0- control, T1-0.01 BRs, T2- 0.02 ppm BRs, T3- 0.04 ppm BRs, T4- 0.08 ppm BRs and each treatment were replicated for four times. All treatments significantly performed better as compared to control. According to the results obtained, the maximum plant height (3.32 m), Higher number of primary branches (4.82) and stem (13.85 cm) was recorded in the plants treated with 0.04 ppm (T4 treatment), whereas, minimum plant height was noticed in control treatment of no growth regulator treatment (T0). In the same way, maximum number of panicles/ plant (46.80), maximum pods set percent plant 3.71) and maximum fruit yield per plant (13.94 kg) was recorded in T4 treatment of 0.04 ppm and minimum values for all these parameters were recorded in control treatment (T0). Therefore, foliar feeding of BRs of 0.4 ppm is recommended for better growth, flowering, fruiting and final yield of drumsticks and which is may be used for commercial cultivation drumsticks for good economic returns.
