Abstract:

Scarcity of irrigation water in critical growth stages of the crop is one of the major causes of low productivity and decline of citrus orchards. Regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) is a recently proposed water saving technique in irrigated agriculture. The present study was planned with a hypothesis that the optimal RDI scheduling at early fruit growth period (EFGP), which coincides with summer months could save substantial amount of water, without significantly affecting the yield of ‘Kinnow’ mandarin plants. The greater plant growth was recorded with fully-irrigated plants (RDI100-100-100.) while, maximum fruit yield with better quality was recorded under plant treated with RDI at 100% ETc at early and 50% ETc in final fruit growth period (T8). Conversely higher acidity and lower total soluble solid with the fruits in RDI0-100-0 treatment compared to other treatments.
