Abstract:

An investigation to assess “the influence of plant spacing and system on light interception, physiological parameters, yield and quality of litchi cv Shahi was conducted at ICAR-NRC on Litchi, Muzaffarpur during 2018-19 under Randomized Block Design with four replications. Healthy plant of Shahi variety were planted in square system at 2x2 m, 3x3 m, 4x4 m, 5x5 m, 6x6 m and 8x8 m (control)  and in rectangular system at 4x3 m, 5x3 m , 6x4 m and 8x4 m. The effect of different spacing and planting system were assessed for light interception, canopy area, leaf area, leaf temperature, photosynthetic rate, number of fruits per plant and yield (kg/tree), fruit weight (g) ,fruit length (mm) and breadth(mm) total soluble solids(0B), acidity(%) .
