Abstract:

An experiment was carried out at All India Coordinated Research Project on Palms, OUAT, Bhubaneswar during 2013-2014 to study the effect of integrated nutrient management on physico-chemical properties of soil as well as on plant tissue of Noni (Morinda citrifolia L.) grown as a mixed crop in coconut garden. The experiment was conducted on a ten years old noni plantation with 7 treatments replicated thrice in a RBD. The treatments were T1: control, T2: 100% RDF, T3: 75% RDF + 25% organic, T4: 50% RDF+ 50% organic, T5:25% RDF + 75% organic, T6: RDF through organics (FYM+ in situ green manuring+ biofertilizer), T7: RDF from organics (FYM+ in situ green manuring + Vermicompost). Observations were recorded on plant biometrical parameters, leaf and fruit nutrient concentrations, yield, uptake of nutrients by noni crop and post harvest soil physico-chemical parameters. Based on the soil test report, 50% inorganic nitrogen integrated with 50% nitrogen through FYM (T4) was found more effective in resulting higher uptake of N (28.42kg/ha), moderate uptake of P (3.95 kg/ha) and K (30.00 kg/ha) which was also reflected in terms of higher concentration of N (2.16%), P (0.30 %), and K (0.28 %) in the fruit tissue.
