A study to assess the influence of foliar application of zinc and boron on the growth of Ascocenda var. Big Suksamaran was carried out at Vellanikkara during the period from May 2018 to May 2019. Foliar application of micronutrients, viz., zinc (as zinc sulphate) and boron (as boric acid), was done at 100 ppm and 250 ppm at fortnightly intervals. Application of 100 ppm boron was the best for plant height, shoot diameter, number of leaves, and leaf area.
