Abstract

Nutrients play a major role in influencing the growth and development in cotton. Generally
major nutrients viz., N, P and K are supplied to cotton either through soil or foliage and the
micronutrients and growth promoting substances applied as foliar feeding. But, foliar application
of nutrients through fertilizers such as Di ammonium phosphate (DAP), Potassium chloride (KCl)
and micronutrient mixtures during flower and boll development stages have been shown to be
effective in efficient utilization of nutrients by cotton and thereby reduce boll shedding and
increase the yield. In this context, the literatures on foliar nutrition of major and micronutrients
on the growth, yield and quality of cotton are reviewed in this paper.
