Abstract:

Experiment on effect of foliar application of micronutrients (Zn, Fe, B, Mn and Cu) on mandarin orange leaf micro nutrient status was carried out during 2015-16 at lower pulney hills of Tamilnadu, India. The results showed that foliar application of micronutrient alone significantly increased the individual micronutrient content and micronutrients in combination compare to control. Therefore application of micronutrients as foliar spray reduces incidence of deficiency calamities, in turn flourishes the growth and yield attributes subsequently.
