Abstract:

The present studies entitled “Impact of pre and post-harvest urea on growth, fruit set and return bloom of apple cv. Red Delicious in Kashmir valley” were carried out in the Division of Fruit Science, SKUAST-Kashmir, Shalimar, Srinagar during the year 2013 and 2014. Twenty five year old apple trees of cv. Red Delicious were selected at the Sher-e-Kashmir university of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Shalimar, Kashmir. Urea (0.3 and 0.5 %) were sprayed 4 weeks after petal fall and urea (0.3, 1, 2 and 5 %) were sprayed after harvest. Results revealed that post-harvest urea sprays @ 2% and 5% at 10 % leaf fall were found best to increase fruit set and yield. Post-harvest urea spray (2-5 %) established supremacy to increase return bloom. Different levels of urea at different timings were non-significant with respective to tree height. However, 5 per cent urea applied at 10 per cent leaf fall resulted in maximum tree volume and followed by 2 per cent urea applied at 10 per cent leaf fall. All the treatments differed significantly with respect to fruit girth and shoot growth.
