Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during March to January, 2019-2020 at the Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Prayagraj to study the “Effect of Foliar Application of Macro and Micronutrients on Fruit drop, Growth and quality of Kinnow Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) on Five year old plants under Prayagraj Agro climatic conditions”. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design on Kinnow Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) on fruit drop, Growth and quality with 5 various treatments combinations (Control, Urea -1%, Potassium – 1%, Zinc sulfate – 0.5%, Iron Sulfate – 1%, Boric acid – 0.2%) in three replications. The Maximum plant height ranged from 199.46 cm to 239.64 cm. The minimum plant height (176.68 cm) was recorded in Control (Water spray) which was significantly over all other treatments. Based on the results obtained, the most number of flowers obtain in Treatment combination of (Urea1%+Zinc sulfate 0.5%+Iron sulfate1%), maximum number of fruits per plant (171.45), maximum fruit weight  per plant (110.42gm) and maximum fruit length per plant (6.30cm) was found superior at Treatment combination of Urea 1%+Zinc sulfate 0.5%  + Boric acid 0.2%) foliar spray. Among these treatment combinations, the most effective combination of foliar spray for Plant height(cm), number of flowers, fruits per plant, fruit weight, fruit length is (Urea1%+Zinc sulfate 0.5%+Boric acid 0.2%)
