Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Effect of severity of pruning and fruit retention on vegetative parameters of custard apple” was carried out during 2019-20 and 2020-21 farmers field at Dhanaj (Bu), Tq- Karanja, Dist- Washim (MS). The experiment was laid out in Split Plot Design designed with four severity of pruning viz., P1- No pruning (control), P2- Light pruning: thickness of branch 3-5mm (Refill thickness), P3- Medium pruning: thickness of branch 6-10mm (Pencil thickness) and P4- Hard pruning: thickness of branch 11-15mm (Thumb thickness) and fruit thinning are T1- no thinning (control), T2- Fruit retention up to 100 fruits per plant, T3-fruit retention up to 80 fruits per plant, T4- Fruit retention up to 60 fruits per plant and T5- fruit retention up to 40 fruits per plant. Maximum fruit yield per plant, fruit yield per plot and fruit yield per hectare was recorded in medium pruning and no thinning. However, maximum weight of fruit, fruit length and fruit breadth were recorded in medium pruning and fruit retention upto 40 fruits per plant followed by fruit retention upto 60 fruits per plant
