Abstract:
Nagpur mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco) is well-known citrus cultivar in India. Nagpur mandarin occupies a considerable importance particularly in Vidarbha region of M.S. In recent years, it has been observed that orange gardens are declined. Deficiency of micronutrient elements has been reported as one of the major causes of citrus decline in India. The present investigation was undertaken to study the effect of soil and foliar application of zinc on soil properties yield and quality of Nagpur mandarin at Regional Fruit Research Station, (Dr. P.D.K.V., Akola) Katol, Dist. Nagpur. Six different treatments (five tree units in each treatment) in four replications were laid out in randomized block design. The experimental soil had pH 7.65, low in available N, P and high in available K and deficient in Zn. The treatments consisting of recommended dose of fertilizer, RDF+ZnSO4@50g/tree, RDF+ ZnSO4 @100g/tree, RDF+ ZnSO4 @150g/tree, RDF+ 0.5 % ZnSO4 foliar spray/ tree (1 spray), RDF+ 0.5 % ZnSO4 foliar spray/tree (2 spray). Results indicated that soil and foliar application of micronutrient significantly enhanced the yield and quality parameters of Nagpur mandarin.
