Abstract:

Mango is designated as “King” of fruits due to its wide adaptability, high nutritive value, richness in variety, delicious taste, pleasant flavour and attractive appearance. Fruits are rich in vitamin A and C Application of agro-chemicals alters the behaviour of trees for the economic benefit of the fruit growers. In this regard an experiment was conducted at Agriculture Research Station, Banswara district of Rajasthan to find out the response of different agro-chemicals. The experiment consisted of thirteen treatments along with control and replicated thrice in a Randomized Block Design. Fifteen years old mango orchard was selected for experiment which has Dashehari, Langra and Kesar. Plants were planted with square system of planting and 10x10 m spacing. Agro-chemicals used Calcium chloride, Potassium nitrate, Paclobutrazol and Sorbitol. The following treatment combinations were applied control-water spray, Calcium chloride (0.3, 0.6 and 0.9%), Potassium nitrate (1, 2 and 3%), Paclobutrazol (500, 1000 and 1500 ppm) and Sorbitol (1.5, 2.0 and 2.5%). Application of different agro-chemicals was applied at different stages and time. Among alternate bearing mango cultivars (Dashehari, Langra and Kesar), cultivar Langra recorded higher fruit quality over Dashehari and Kesar. Fruit firmness and shelf life enhanced in the calcium chloride (0.9%) treated trees. In the same tune Sorbitol (2.5%) had better with respect to pulp weight and organoleptic score.
