Abstract

Plant nutrients both macro and micro plays a major productive and qualitative role in bringing stability and sustainability in the production system particularly in fruits crops like citrus and therefore, effective nutrient management is critical. The aim of our paper is to study the influence of foliar sprays of nutrients on yield and yield attributing characters such as fruit drop, final fruit retention, number of fruits per plant and fruit yield of Kinnow mandarin as appropriate rate, time and method of application of fertilizers in Kinnow are considered to be the major indices in deciding the desired level of productivity and  quality of fruits. Therefore, many studies around the world, evaluating the yield and yield attributing characters of Kinnow mandarin with respect to foliar application of nutrients were studied and their results showed that the foliar application were economically viable and beneficial for both Kinnow productivity and environmental sustainability. Hence, for obtaining better fruit yield and minimizing fruit drop with aim to achieve desired level of productivity and improved fruit quality, foliar spray of macro and micronutrients could be used effectively.
