Abstract:

A systematic study was undertaken to determine the best treatment of integrated nutrient management for the growth, yield and quality of sweet orange. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design with seven treatments and four replications viz., T1 : Control (250g N+ 180g P+ 150g K+ 15 kg FYM), T2: 75% nitrogen of recommended dose of fertilizer + 25% organic manure (vermicompost), T3: 60% nitrogen of recommended dose of fertilizer + 40% organic manure (FYM), T4: 60% nitrogen of recommended dose of fertilizer + 40% organic manure (vermicompost), T5: 50% nitrogen of recommended dose of fertilizer + 50% organic manure (FYM), T6: 50% nitrogen of recommended dose of fertilizer + 50% organic manure (vermicompost) and T7: 75% nitrogen of recommended dose of fertilizer + 25% organic manure (FYM). Based on the results obtained from the present investigations, it was observed that the highest tree height, annual shoot growth, fruit set, fruit yield, fruit weight, fruit size, fruit volume and fruit quality characteristics like TSS, reducing sugar, total sugar and non-reducing sugar were observed with treatment T3 [60% nitrogen of recommended dose of fertilizer + 40% organic manure (FYM)].
