Abstract:

A study was conducted at the Research Farm, Division of Fruit Science, FOA Udheywalla, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu, J&K India on twenty year old plants of Litchi cultivar Dehradun. Trees were subjected to mulching with different types of materials (black polythene and paddy straw) and supplied with irrigations @ 200 liters / tree at 3, 6 and 9 days intervals. Results revealed that the trees supplied with irrigation at 6 days intervals and mulched with black polythene i.e., T8 showed Black polythene mulch and irrigation at 6 days interval was superior in terms of chemical characteristics of fruits viz., total soluble solids (19.4oBrix), TSS: acid ratio (34.49), ascorbic acid (45.35mg/100g), anthocyanin content (52.13mg/100g) and pectin content (0.72%). Titratable acidity (0.69 %) was recorded highest in plant mulched with black polythene and irrigation at 9 days interval.
