The paper presents the research  results of the effect of the triazole derivative retrandant folicur on morphogenesis, accumulation of nonstructural carbohydrates, key elements of mineral nutrition and yield of gooseberry plants. Field small-land experiments were laid in 2015–2017. Gooseberry plants of cv. Mashen’ka were treated with a 0,025 % solution of the folicur during the budding phase using a paddle sprayer. The phytometric indices were determined every 10 days, the mesostructure was established in the middle-tier leaves in the phase of the fruit formation, the content of the amount of chlorophylls was determined in the raw material by the spectrophotometric method, the content of various forms of carbohydrates and elements of mineral nutrition in plant organs was determined by biochemical methods in fixed dry material (content of sugars and starch was estimated by the iodometric method, and the content of total nitrogen was determined with the help of the Kjeldahl method). The treatment of the plants with the product positively influenced the formation of the leaf mesostructure – the thickness of the chlorenchyme and the leaf blade increased in general, the linear sizes and volume of the cells of the columnar and spongy parenchyma increased, chlorophylls accumulated. Under the action of the preparation more non-structural carbohydrates (sugars + starch) and mineral nutrients were accumulated in leaves and shoots in comparison with the plants of the control variant. Such changes provided the necessary reserve of carbohydrates and nutrients for the fruit formation and growth, causing a considerable increase in the crop productivity. Consequently, the triazole derivative retardant folicur, influencing the anatomical, morphological and physiological and also biochemical characteristics of the gooseberry plants, changed the nature of the donor-acceptor relationships in the plant, which intensified the production process and optimized the crop productivity.
