A field experiment was carried out in lateritic soil of coastal region in Maharashtra during the year 2016-17 to study the influence of foliar application of nutrients on yield and quality of Alphonso Mango at Mango Orchard of Department of Horticulture, Dr. Balasaheb Sawant Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli Dist. Ratnagiri. The results of the experiment revealed that the treatment receiving foliar spray of 3 per cent Amrashakti multinutrient solution showed its superiority in respect of length and breadth of mango fruit, average weight of fruit and maximum number of fruits per tree as well as yield of mango t ha-1 as compared to all other treatments. However, in case of total soluble solids, ascorbic acid content, reducing sugars, total sugars as well as β-carotene content in mango fruit was improved with reducing acidity of mango pulp due to the foliar spray of 3 per cent Amrashakti multinutrient solution. In the present investigation, the foliar application of nutrients showed their beneficial effect on yield and quality of Alphonso mango over control treatment.
