Abstract:

The present investigation was carried to evaluate the effect of different pruning intensities on growth and yield of nectarine cv. Snow Queen at fruit research farm, SKUAST-Kashmir Shalimar Srinagar during the year 2016 and 2017. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design with nine pruning treatments and three replications. The results obtained revealed that there is a significant increase in shoot growth and leaf area with highest pruning intensity viz., 2/3rd head back and 20 % thinning out. The results further revealed that with the increase in pruning intensities total yield was reduced however, marketable yield of quality fruits were increased. Highest total yield was obtained in those treatments where minimum pruning intensity i.e. 10 % and 20 % thinning out of the plants was performed.
