Role of Biologically Active Amino Acid Formulations on Quality and Crop Productivity of Tea (Camellia sp.)

J. Thomas, A.K.A. Mandal, R. Raj Kumar and A. Chordia

Present study deals with foliar application of active amino acids based commercial formulations with particular reference to physiological attributes and their synergism with crop productivity. Application of Aminolforte resulted in momentous improvement in stomatal conductance and SPAD values while it reduced the diffusion resistance. Identical results were obtained in Humiforte 20, Fosnutren 20R and Kadostim 20 with varying degree of responses. Biochemical analysis revealed a significant increase in the content of total polyphenols and amino acids due to application of increasing concentrations of Aminolforte 20. Even though catechins increased marginally with application of Fosnutren 20R, positive improvement in the amino acid content was also noticed. Quality attributes like theaflavins, thearubigins, total liquor colour, colour index, briskness index and caffeine of made tea samples had a significant improvement in response to the foliar application. Significant improvement in productivity, physiological attributes, biochemical constituents, quality parameters of the tea was evident with reference to the foliar application of bioformulations. Responses of the individual active amino acid formulations are presented and discussed in detail.
