An experiment was carried out, with a view to study the response of cluster bean to foliar application of PGRs on biochemical parameters at the Vegetable Research Scheme, Regional Horticultural Research Station of the Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, Gujarat, India during Summer 2016 and 2017. The experiment was conducted in randomized block design with three replications, which included 13 treatments.Biochemical parameters like total chlorophyll content of leaves (498.41 mg 100g-1), protein content (3.93 %), carbohydrate content (13.59 %), crude fibre content (3.33 %), vitamin C content (55.17 %), dry matter content (22.67 %), moisture content (77.33 %) and ash content (1.85 %) of cluster bean pod found significant on pooled analysis basis. Under biochemical parameters, response of treatment T4 (GA3 20 mg l-1) was good.

Key words: Cluster bean, Foliar application, PGRs and Biochemical parameters.
