Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted in order to improve the yields of Sweet Orange in Nalgonda district of Telangana. In India, Telangana is one of the major sweet orange producing states. Sweet Orange is major important horticulture crop which was having high source of vitamin C. Farmers are getting lower yields due to non adoption of proper management practices, neglecting the application of micronutrients, due to this reason most of the farmers facing micronutrient deficiency in Sweet Orange of Nalgonda District in Telangana. In order to reduce micronutrients deficiency and improve yields, OFT was conducted in farmers’ field in two years with three locations in each year. Timely application of micronutrients to Sweet Orange improve the yields and B:C ratio in OFT, when compared to farmer practice. The average yield and B:C ratio of three farmers in 2016-17 was 7600 kg/ac and 1.8:1 in farmer practice, where as in OFT average yield and B:C ratio was improved to 9800 kg/ac and 2.6:1 respectively. In 2017-18 average yield and B:C ratio was 9560 kg/ac and 5.86:1 in OFT compared to farmer practice was 7840 kg/ac and 4.45:1 yield and B:C ratio respectively. Application of micronutrients improves the yield and quality of fruit.
