Abstract:
A field experiment entitled ʻʻEffect of foliar spray of nutrients on yield and quality of Nagpur mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco.)ʼʼ was conducted during the year 2018-19, at the Fruit Instructional Farm, Department of Fruit Science, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar. The experiment consisted of different treatments of nutrients including macro and micro-nutrients and was laid out in Randomized Block Design. Amongst different treatments application, treatment T21 (ZnSO4 0.5% + K2SO4 1.0%) foliar application was found significantly superior over other treatments in terms of quality parameters such TSS/Acidity ratio, ascorbic acid, total sugars, reducing sugars, non-reducing sugars and juice pH. Whereas, minimum acidity percentage was found under the same treatment. Overall, T21 treatment exhibited better fruit quality of Nagpur mandarin fruit tree.
