Abstract:

Investigations were undertaken to study the influence of drip fertigation levels on fruit quality characters in aonla was carried out during 2011 to 2013. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with eight treatments of fertigation levels, namely 75, 100 and 125% recommended dose of water soluble fertilizers including, soil application (control) and replicated three times, to test various fruit quality attributes of 8 years aonla cv. NA.7 grown under drip fertigation. The investigation indicated that 125 % recommended dose of water soluble fertilizers (T8) applied through fertigation resulted in maximum fruit quality characters viz., TSS (13.10 Brix and 13.6 0 Brix), Acidity (2.10 % and 2.15%), Ascorbic acid (575.8mg gand 580.6mg g), Reducing sugar (2.70 % and 3.10 %), Non-Reducing sugar (1.60% and 1.85 %) and Total sugar (4.30% and 4.95%) during 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 respectively. Therefore (T8) 125 % recommended doses of NPK in the form of water soluble fertilizers can be suggested for increasing the yield of eight years old aonla cv. NA.7 significantly.
