Application of zinc sulphate, borax and micronutrient mixture through soil and foliar, significantly improved growth like plant height, number of leaves, neck thickness and bulb diameter and average bulb weight yield parameter. Improvement in growth and yield contributing characters significantly increased marketable and total yield in Onion and the highest value were recorded in the treatment with foliar spray of  zinc sulphate @ 0.5% @ 30 and 45 DAT (34.13 t ha-1and 38.28 t ha-1) that was followed by soil application of zinc sulphate @ 10 kg/ha. There was improvement in quality of onion bulb in the form of TSS. Due to application of zinc sulphate borax and micronutrient mixtures. Hence micronutrients nutrient are beneficial for Onion.

Key words: Onion, Foliar application, Zinc
