Abstract:

The present study was carried out at Horticultural Research Centre, Patharchatta, G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology Pantnagar, Uttarakhand to find out the most effective combination of NPK fertigation with foliar applications on economic performance of peach during two successive years i.e., 2015 and 2016 in five and six years old peach cv. Shan-e-Punjab. Based on recommended dose of fertilizer (420:240:300g NPK/tree/year) for conventional method, nine treatments were formulated and studied. The obtained results indicate that the maximum yield (10.61 t/ha) was recorded with T8. Similarly, the total expenditure cost (Rs. 107530.31), gross income (Rs. 530500.00) and net income (Rs. 422969.69) per hectare were found higher under treatments T8, whereas, it was found to be lowest under control (T9). Among all the treatments, the benefit: cost ratio was found highest (3.93) under T8, followed by 3.26 in T4, however, it was found lowest (1.21) in T9. Thus, from economic point of view, fertigation dose of 75% RDN + 0.5% Ferrous sulfate + 0.2% Borax (T8) was found to be most suitable in Tarai conditions of Uttarakhand.
