Abstract:

The present investigation Effect of organic manure and biofertilizers on plant growth, yield and quality of sweet orange (Citrus sinensis L.) cv. Mosambi was conducted at fruit orchard Department of Fruit Science, College of Horticulture, VCSG Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar, Pauri Garhwal during the year 2017-18. The experiment was conducted to find out the most suitable treatment combination of FYM and biofertilizers for better yield, quality of citrus fruits. The experiment was laid out according to Randomized Complete Block Design with eight treatments and three replications. Based on the results obtained from the present investigations, it was observed that the maximum increase in plant height, plant volume, trunk girth, leaf size, no of flowers/ plant, fruit setting, average fruit weight, fruit yield/ plant, fruit length, fruit diameter, were observed maximum with treatment T8 FYM (40 kg/ plant) + VAM (100 g/ plant) + Azotobacter (10 g/ plant). While maximum value of quality parameters like Juice percentage, TSS, Titrable acidity, Ascorbic acid and total sugar were observed in treatment T6 FYM (40 kg/ plant) + Azotobacter (10 g/ plant).


Keywords: Farm yard manure, Biofertilizers, Citrus, Yield and Quality.
