Abstract:
An experiment on “Effect of nutrients on yield and yield attributing characters in cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.)” was carried out at Cashew Research Station, Ranasinghpur under All India Coordinated Research Project on Cashew, Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar during the year 2017-18 by adopting Randomized Block Design (RBD) with six treatments and four replications (T1: 100% RDF (500:250:250 g NPK/Plant), T2: T1 + FYM @ 10kg/Plant/Year, T3: T2 + Foliar spray of major nutrients (3% Urea + 0.5% H3PO4 + 1% K2SO4), T4: T2 + Foliar spray of secondary and micronutrients (0.5% ZnSO4 + 0.1% Solubor + 0.5% MgSO4), T5: T3+ Foliar spray of secondary and micronutrients (0.5% ZnSO4 + 0.1% Solubor + 0.5% MgSO4) and T6: Control). The study revealed that combination of 100% RDF (500:250:250 g NPK/Plant) + FYM @ 10kg/Plant/Year + Foliar spray of major nutrients (3% Urea + 0.5% H3PO4 + 1% K2SO4) + Foliar spray of secondary and micronutrients (0.5% ZnSO4 + 0.1% Solubor + 0.5% MgSO4) recorded maximum number of panicles m-2 (18.40), sex ratio (0.41), apple weight (54.83g), nut weight (7.35g), nut length (3.81cm), nut breadth (2.69cm) and nut yield plant-1(2.70kg).
