Abstract:
A study was conducted in farmer’s field at Chillahalli village, Hiriyur taluk, Chitradurga district during the year 2020-2021. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design comprising of seven treatments replicated thrice. Among fruit and yield parameters, fruit length (8.60 cm), fruit diameter (82.10 mm), fruit volume (369.38 cc), number of fruits per plant (63.95), average fruit weight (290.11 g), fruit yield (18.55 kg/plant) was maximum in 100 per cent RDF through split application along with jeevamrutha (T7). The maximum TSS (16.24 °Brix), TSS : acid ratio (33.83), ascorbic acid (17.34 mg/100 ml), moisture content in arils (87.01%), juice content (81.16%), minimum acidity (0.48%) was observed in T7. Therefore, 100 per cent RDF through split application along with jeevamrutha at different stages i.e., 160:80:80 N: P2O5: K2O g per plant from defoliation to flowering stage, 100:60:40 N: P2O5: K2O g per plant from flowering to fruit set stage and 140:60:80 N: P2O5: K2O g per plant at fruit development stage proved to be promising for fetching higher yield in pomegranate cv. Bhagwa.
