Effect of Integrated Nutrient Management on Vegetative Growth and Yield in Mango Cv. Himsagar
An experiment was conducted to study the effect of various combinations of integrated nutrient management schedules on vegetative growth and yield in mango cv. Himsagar at Regional Research Station, Gayeshpur, B.C.K.V., Nadia, West Bengal, during the years 2009-2011. Maximum total increment in plant height (108.00 cm), plant spread in E-W direction (123.00 cm) and N-S direction (105.00 cm), and tree volume (85.95 m3) was recorded in 500:250:250g NPK/tree/year + 50kg FYM + 250g Azospirillium (T6) compared to that in other treatments. This treatment (T6) also significantly increased total number of fruits (234.12 fruits / tree), average fruit weight (263.10g) and yield (58.56kg /tree).
