Nitrogen (N), calcium (Ca) and boron (B) are among the most important nutrients needed by plants to have better yield and fruit quality. These nutrients can be supplied in the form of urea (46% N) and liquid calcium-boron (6% Ca and 2% B) fertilizers. Hence, a study to evaluate the effects of varying rates of urea and calcium-boron (CaB) fertilizer applications at flower-bud stage on ‘MD2’ pineapple fruit was conducted. The experiment was laid out in 4x4 split plot in randomized complete block design (RCBD). Rates of urea (0, 25, 50 and 75 kg ha-1, respectively) served as the main plot, whereas the rates of CaB (0, 20, 30 and 40 L ha-1, respectively) served as the sub plot.
