Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Central Horticultural Experiment Station (ICAR-IIHR), Bhubaneswar, India during 2013-16 to study the response of mango variety ‘Banganpalli’ to ‘Arka Mango Special’, a foliar micronutrient formulation developed by IIHR, Bengaluru for higher and quality yields in mango. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with four treatments, viz., T1: control (sprayed with distilled water), T2: Arka Mango Special @ 0.5%, T3: IIHR micronutrient formulation-2 @ 0.5% and T4: recommended dose of Zn and B for the region, i.e., Zn (60ppm) + B (250ppm), and 6 replications. Treatments were foliar sprayed thrice at flower bud differentiation, flower initiation and marble stage of fruit growth. All the three micronutrient treatments significantly improved fruit retention, yield and two important fruit quality parameters, viz., TSS and TSS/acid ratio over the control. Among micronutrient treatments, the treatment Arka Mango Special recorded the maximum values for no. of fruits/panicle at pea stage (26.14), no. of fruits/tree (64.26) and fruit yield (23.65kg/plant) whereas, fruit quality was found to be relatively better in T3 and T4 in terms of TSS/acid ratio (57.72) and TSS (19.93°B), respectively.
