Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out at Horticultural Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, BACA, AAU, Anand during the year 2014-15 to study the “Effect of soil and foliar application of multi-micronutrients on fruit quality, shelf life of fruits and nutrient content of leaf of mango (Mangifera indica L.) rav. Amrapali”. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with factorial concept with three levels of soil application viz., S1 (control), S2 (200 g/tree multi-micronutrient Grade-V) and S3 (400 g/tree multi-micronutrient Grade-V) and three level of foliar application viz., F1 (control), F2 (1% Spray of multi-micronutrient Grade-IV) and F3 (2% Spray of multi-micronutrient Grade-IV) and replicated thrice. Multi-micronutrients were sprayed at three stages i.e. at flower bud initiation, at full bloom stage and at pea stage. Among fruit quality parameters viz., TSS (21.37 °Brix), reducing sugar (8.04%), non-reducing sugars (10.46%), total sugars (18.28%), ascorbic acid (41.17 mg/100g), minimum acidity (0.134%) and highest shelf life of fruits (12.71 days) were recorded in treatment 1% spray of multi-micronutrient Grade-IV (F2). Whereas, significantly maximum nutrients content viz. iron (635.85 mg kg-1), manganese (164.81 mg kg-1), zinc (218.70 mg kg-1) and copper (58.56 mg kg-1) in leaf recorded under treatment F3 (2% spray of multi-micronutrient Grade-IV).
