Abstract:

The present study was aimed at evaluating the fertility status of mosambi orchards at Jamsar and Lunkaransar series of Bikaner district in irrigated area of arid Rajasthan. All mosambi orchards soils were found alkaline to saline in nature, EC2of all the orchard soil samples was normal. The CaCO3 content in soils showed increasing trend with depth, low in organic carbon and available N, Low to medium in available P2O5, Medium to high in available K2O content, Majority of samples were found low in available Fe and Zn content, low to sufficient in available Cu and high in available Mn content. Leaf N content were found low in mosambi orchards, majority of leaf samples found optimum in leaf P, Fe, and Mn content, whereas leaf K content were found low in mosambi orchards. The leaf Cu and Zn content were found low to optimum range in mosambi orchards soils. The mosambi juice N, P, K, Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn contain were found low to optimum range in mosambi orchards at Jamsar and Lunkaransar series of Bikaner district. The fruit yield and quality parameters were significantly influenced by the status of nutrients in mosambi leaves. The studied area signifying the prominent role of leaf nutrition in determining the yield potential and fruit quality at a given soil fertility level. Based on the findings of the present investigation application of N, P, Fe, Cu and Zn fertilizer nutrients need to be addressed in mosambi orchards soils in the studied area for optimizing higher productivity.
