Abstract:

During 2018-19, effects of different organic nutrient sources were tested on litchi cv. Dehradun in terms of nutrient composition of soil and leaves at Advanced Centre for Horticulture Research, Udheywalla, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu. This experiment demonstrated significant differences in the nutrient element composition of soil and leaves of litchi air layers. The maximum NPK content (294.76 kg/ha, 31.43 kg/ha and 177.42 kg/ha, respectively) of soil was recorded in media containing litchi orchard soil along with FYM and rhizobacteria whereas, the minimum NPK content (245.94 kg/ha, 8.80 kg/ha and 100.39 kg/ha, respectively) of soil was recorded in control. The NPK content of litchi leaves (1.46 %, 0.24 % and 2.16 %, respectively) was found to be significantly higher in treatment containing litchi orchard soil in combination with FYM and rhizobacteria, whereas, the minimum NPK content of leaves (1.08 %, 0.14 % and 1.45 %, respectively) was recorded in control. The results of this study suggest that rhizobacteria has the potential to increase the soil fertility as well as nutrient composition of litchi leaves which will ultimately enhance the plant growth and development as well as yield.
