Abstract:
The results of experiments showed that the maximum gain in average plant height (0.77 m), stem girth (0.75 cm) and plant spread in E-W i.e. 0.96 m and in N-S i.e. 0.94 m was recorded in F1 (application of 100 per cent RDF through fertigation) followed by F2 (75 per cent RDF through fertigation). The minimum gain in growth attribute like plant height (0.59 m), stem girth (0.57 cm) and plant canopy spread (E-W 0.68 m; and N-S 0.67 m) was recorded in treatment F3. Most of growth attributes were also significantly influenced by pruning and crop load treatments. The plants which were subjected to heavy pruning recorded significantly higher plant height and canopy spread (E-W and N-S) followed by moderate pruning. The maximum gain in plant height (0.72 m) and plant canopy spread in E-W i.e. 0.79 m and in N-S i.e. 0.77 m were recorded in pruning treatment P1. The different crop load treatments did not show significant difference on plant height and canopy spread.
