Abstract:

Mango (Mangifera indica L.) belongs to family Anacardaceae is known as “King of fruits” and nectar of God being most palatable and rich in sugar, organic acids and minerals and thus captures great demand for all walks of life. To study Periodical soil and leaf nutrient status of Alphonso mango orchards from Ratnagiri and Devgad and their relationship with yield, two orchards from Ratnagiri tahasil viz. Warwade-1 and Warwade-2 and two from Devgad tahasil viz. Padel and Rameshwar were selected. The analysis of available soil nutrients showed to be sufficient in micronutrients (Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu). While the concentration of nutrients in leaf to be deficient in Fe, high in Mn, high to excess in zinc and excess in Cu. The DTPA extractable micronutrients in soil and total micronutrient contents in leaves showed various trends at all locations. In case of yield, the highest yield was observed at Warwade-2 while, lowest at Rameshwar amongst all locations. The available micronutrients viz. Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu while, micronutrient contents in leaf viz. Fe and Mn were significantly correlated with yield.
