Abstract

A rootstock trial was laid out on sweet orange cultivar 'Mosambi' budded on five rootstocks viz., Jambhiri, Karna Khatta, Kichili, Rangpur lime and Sour orange. Tree growth was maximum on Jambhiri and minimum on Rangpur lime. Fruit yield (both in number and weight) was highest on Karna Khatta, rootstock followed by Rangpur lime while, fruit size and juice content were maximum on Rangpur lime. Total soluble solids and ascorbic acid content were highest in Karna Khatta, while T.S.S. to acid ratio was maximum in Rangpur lime. Foliar nitrogen content was highest in Karna Khatta followed by Rangpur lime. On the basis of four seasons data in respect of yield and fruit quality, Karna Khatta and Rangpur lime were the observed as suitable rootstocks for 'Mosambi' sweet orange grown on laterite soil of West Bengal.
