Abstract: To know the response of sweet orange to integrated nutrient management, a field experiment was conducted at the experimental farm of Sweet orange Research Station, Badnapur, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Agricultural University, Parbhani for the year 2015-16. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) comprised of ten treatments having various combinations of inorganic fertilizers (urea, SSP and MOP), FYM, vermicompost and green manures. Amongst different INM- based treatments, the treatment receiving 75% RDF + 25% FYM + Green manuring recorded significantly highest plant height, Girth of stem, plants spread and canopy volume as compare to other treatments. Application of 75% RDF + 25% vermicompost + Green mannuring recorded significantly maximum number of fruits/ tree. The fruit yield was recorded significantly higher with application of 75% RDF + 25% vermicompost + Green mannuring
