Effect of micro-irrigation and fertigation on growth parameter and fruit yield of acid lime
Author(s): HB Goramnagar, PK Nagre, SG Bharad and Dinesh Paithankar
Abstract: The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design comprised of three levels of irrigation i.e. 100, 90 and 80 per cent micro-irrigation of Evp and three levels of fertigation i.e. 100, 80 and 60 per cent RDF with nine treatment combinations replicated thrice to study the effect of micro-irrigation and fertigation on plant growth parameters. The plant growth in respect of plant height and plant spread was found maximum in I1 (100% micro irrigation at Evp) and in F1 (100% RDF through fertigation) individually which were at par with I2 (90% micro irrigation at Evp) and F2 (80% RDF fertigation) except increment in shoot length. The treatment combinations of irrigation and fertigation were non-significant on these parameters. The significantly highest number of fruits in hasta bahar were produced in the irrigation level I3 (676.6); fertigation level F1 (688.6) and in combination treatment I3F1 (734.2) which were at par with I2 (664.2); F2 (671.9) and I3F2 (719.5) and I2F1 (710.5), respectively during pooled results.
