Abstract:
The field experiment was carried out to evaluate “Effect of foliar application of nutrients on leaf nutrient concentration at different growth stages and yield of Alphonso mango” at Mango Orchard of Department of Horticulture, Dr. Balasaheb Sawant Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri (M.S.) during 2016-17. There were seven treatments with three replications in randomized block design comprised of foliar application of urea, potassium nitrate and Amrashakti each at 1 per cent and 3 per cent level. The soil application of recommended dose of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (1.5:0.5:1.0 kg ha-1) was undertaken initially to each experimental tree. The results of the experiment indicated that the foliar application of nutrients increases the leaf nutrient concentration at different growth stages and yield of the crop. The treatment comprising foliar spray of 3 per cent Amrashakti multinutrient solution showed its superiority in respect of leaf nutrient concentration viz. total phosphorus and sulphur content and micronutrients content viz. Total zinc, copper, boron and molybdenum as well as in improving yield of Alphonso mango as compared to all other treatments.
