Abstract:
This study aims to determine the response of the growth of dragon fruit (Hylocereus polyrhizus) with the treatment of different levels of control released fertilizer. This research was conducted from October 2020until February 2021 at the Research farm of Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Prayagraj. The study used a randomized block design (RBD), with nine treatments, replicated thrice. The treatments were T0Control (100% RDF), T1C.R.F @ 2g,T2 C.R.F @ 3g, T3 C.R.F @ 4g, T4 C.R.F @ 5g, T5 C.R.F @ 6g, T6 C.R.F @ 7g, T7 C.R.F @ 8g, T8 C.R.F @ 9g. From the present experimental findings it is found that the T8 C.R.F @ 9g was found superior over other treatments in terms of establishment of Dragon fruit. The results revealed that maximum plant height (38.25cm), number of branches (3.73), Main stem width (18.53cm), number of sprouting (3.83), stem length (between two nodes)18.14cm and Survival percentage (100%) of plant were recorded in T8 (C.R.F @ 9g).
