Abstract:

Litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) recognized as “Queen of the fruits”. It is an important sub- tropical evergreen fruit crop belongs to the family Sapindaceae. The present investigation was carried out during the year 2019. Ten years old uniformly grown “Deshi” litchi plants established at Bihar Agricultural University Sabour Fruit Research Station, were sprayed with K2SO4 and KCl @ 0%, 1% and 2% at two different stages i.e. Marble and Stone hardening stage. The plants treated with potassium as foliar feeding significantly improved fruit quality characteristics viz. TSS, TSS/acid ratio, total sugars, reducing sugar, ascorbic acid were also enhanced with marble and stone hardening stage with sprays of different concentrations of potassium fertilizers over untreated trees. Anthocyanin content higher with K2SO4application at stone hardening stage. So, it is concluded that K2SO4 @1% and 2% at stone hardening stage significantly improved total sugar, reducing sugar and anthocyanin litchi cv. Deshi.
