The results of experimentation confirmed the efficiency of the growth regulators for better flowering, fruit set, fruit retention reduced
fruit drop and quality of sapota variety Kalipatti. The study revealed that CCC at 450 ppm significantly increased the number of flowers and
number of fruits per tree. Treatment NAA 200 ppm proved better for reducing flower and fruit drop and ultimately increasing fruit set and fruit
retention, respectively. The treatment GA3 at 150 ppm was effective for weight of fruit, highest per cent of mean total sugar.
