Abstract:

Nitrogen plays a pivotal role in fruit tree performance. It is a major constituent of plant cell and plays an important part in the plant metabolism. Considering the marked effect of nitrogen, its application in fruit trees has been investigated by several researches in India as well as in world. Previously, the studies remained confined to fruit yield and tree growth. However, with the advancement of time, interaction of nitrogen with other nutrients, management practices and growth regulators on leaf and soil nutrient status, fruit quality including nutritive value, antioxidant activity and shelf life were investigated. The major source of nitrogen fertilization was simple urea in past, but now the slow release nitrogen fertilizers like, neem coated urea is also available. Effect of such slow release nitrogen fertilizers on fruit trees were also studied by some workers. These findings are being presented systematically in this article.
