Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to standardize the renewal pruning intensities under different irrigation and nitrogen levels for getting better yield and quality fruits in Santa Rosa plum. There were three irrigation levels, four pruning severities and two nitrogen levels. Pruning was done in the month of January every year. Pruning treatments exhibited a significant effect on fruit set during both the years of study. Among all the pruning treatment highest fruit set and yield was found in T3 treatment and lowest in T1 treatment. In N-fertilization higher yield was observed with N1 treatment as compared to N2 treatment. Plants irrigated at 20 per cent soil moisture depletion of field capacity showed highest yield and fruit set while the lowest was found in 60 per cent soil moisture depletion of field capacity.
