Abstract:

An investigation was carried out at Experimental field of department of Horticulture, Collage of Agriculture, RVSKVV, Gwalior (M.P.) during 2017 to study the effect of micronutrients on growth, yield and quality parameters of sweet orange. Foliar application of 4g - Copper sulfate) + 2g - Ferrous sulfate), + 2g Borax + 4g (Zinc sulfate) + 4g (Magnesium sulfate) + 10g lime per liter water during the mid of March and 1st week of July with 600 N + 500 P + 300 K g/tree on sweet orange gave maximum Canopy volume (3.07 m3), Leaf area (39.19 cm2), Fruit set (79.81%), Fruit weight (167 g), Fruit length (11.8 cm), Fruit diameter (21.8 cm), Number of fruits/tree (248), Yield per tree (41.03 kg) and good quality fruits Juice (56.08 %) Acidity (0.78%), Ascorbic acid (58.04 mg/100ml) with Total Soluble Solids (11.6 oBrix). Therefore, application of this dose of micronutrient combination will improve yield and fruit quality in sweet orange of these micronutrients as a result of which the orchardist will be economically benefited.
