Abstract:

The experiment was carried out at AICRP on Fruits, Citrus Research Station, Tirupati, during 2016-2017 to study the effect of organic amendments and bio-agents on growth of differently aged seedlings of acid lime (Citrus aurantifolia Swingle) cv. Balaji. The experiment was conducted in completely randomized design with three replications. The treatments consisted of 21 treatments with different potting media, organic amendments and bio-agents and their effect was studied on three age group acid lime seedlings. In two months old acid lime seedlings experiment the results indicated that maximum plant height, number of leaves, leaf area, stem girth and Chlorophyll content per seedlings at 150 days after transplanting were recorded in the potting media containing soil, sand, cocopeat @ 1:1:1 v/v, neem cake (20g) and AM @ 5g/bag each per bag. Whereas, highest stem girth was observed in the potting media containing soil, sand, vermicompost@1:1:1 v/v, neem cake (20g) and AM @ 5g/bag each per bag. In case of three and four months old acid lime seedlings maximum plant height, number of leaves, stem girth, leaf area and Chlorophyll content per seedlings were recorded in the potting media containing soil + sand + vermicompost + Arbuscular mycorrhiza (5g) + neem cake 20g each per bag. However, minimum growth parameters were recorded when soil, sand, FYM @ 1:1:1 v/v was used as potting media in case of 2, 3, 4 months old seedlings.
