Abstract:
The present study was undertaken at three locations viz. Karde-Murud (<1 km proximity to sea), Dapoli (10 kms proximity to sea) and Wakavali (25 kms proximity to sea) Tal. Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri (Maharashtra), during the year 2017-2018 and 2018- 19.The various vegetative, flowering and fruiting attributes at various locations were examined during the course of experiment. The days required for harvesting from induction of vegetative flush and days required for maturity at the time of fruit development were also examined. Mango orchards close to sea and grown on red lateritic rocks established their supremacy over other two sea proximities and soil variations owing to lowest soil moisture depletion (by 29.78 %) at post monsoon stage which laid to early induction of vegetative flush (by 22) days followed early (by 13 days) and profuse flowering (by 47 %) and fruiting (by 74%), leading to higher fruit yield per tree (by 57%) with better post-harvest quality of fruits than the orchards at 25 kms proximity to sea grown on plain land with good soil depth. The shorter maturation period by 19 days was observed for fruits at location nearest to sea than other locations.
