Abstract:

The experiment entitled “Effect of pruning severity and irrigation methods on quality production of custard apple” was carried out at Shivar block, Central Research Station, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola to study the effect of severity of pruning and methods of irrigation on quality production of custard apple. The experiment was laid out in Split Plot Design with three methods of irrigation viz., I1- no irrigation, I2- double furrow irrigation and I3- drip irrigation and severity of pruning are P1- no pruning, P2- light pruning, P3- medium pruning and P4- heavy pruning. The tree unit per treatment was two and it was replicated thrice with twelve treatment combinations. Better growth was shown by the heavy pruned (P4) trees with respect to thickness of shoot. Light pruning (P2) showed the highest number of shoots per branch. The fruit quality in respect of fruit weight, fruit size was found highest in heavy pruning (P4) with drip irrigation (I3) which was found at par with medium pruned trees. TSS and acidity was also found maximum in heavy pruned (P4) trees but irrigation doesn’t play significant role. The interaction between severity of pruning and methods of irrigation on fruit quality was found non-significant.
