Abstract:

An experiment on effect of different levels of nitrogenous fertilizers on quality and economics of guava was carried out during kharif season-2014 at Instructional-Cum-Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Latur. Regarding the fruit quality characters like fruit length (8.13 cm), width (7.70 cm), weight of pulp (211.33 g), pulp: seed ratio (37.27) and chemical quality attributes like TSS (14.40 0Brix), reducing and total sugars (5.29 and 8.21% respectively) and minimum value of acidity (0.36%) were recorded in treatment of application 800 g N through neem coated urea (T2). While, post harvest qualities in terms of maximum shelf life (7.63 days) and minimum weight loss after 8 days storage (14.55%) was recorded in guava fruits produced from the treatment of application of 600 g N through neem coated urea (T1). Maximum ascorbic acid content (187.13 mg/100 g pulp) was recorded with the application of 1000 g N through neem coated urea (T3). The economics of guava production, under the influence of different treatments showed that, the highest cost of cultivation (Rs. 1,67,078.66/ha) was recorded with the application of 800 g N through ammonium sulphate (T5). The highest gross and net monetary returns (Rs. 3,73,200 and Rs. 2,08,002 respectively) as well as the benefit: cost ratio (2.25) was observed with the application of 800 g N through neem coated urea(T2).
