Author(s):

Dr. Aradhana Barooah, Dr. Manashi Chakravarty and Binita Hazarika

Abstract:

Citrus is one of the widely grown fruit crops throughout the world and has important medicinal properties and used as an integral component of diet. Efficient nutrient management is prerequisite for quality higher production of citrus. Though chemical fertilizers are the sources of most of the nutrients, injudicious continuous use of chemical fertilizers may cause deleterious effect on soil health and environment. Application of organic manures can supply nutrients for sustainable growth, yield and quality of citrus but sole application of organic manure has some drawbacks like imbalanced nutrition, less fertilizer use efficiency, not cost effective and comparatively less production. Biofertilizers, the carrier of microbial inoculants, can be used to enhance citrus yield by maintaining soil fertility. Integrated nutrient management can play important role for sustainable growth, yield and quality of citrus by maintaining soil health. Keeping in view of proper nutrient management in citrus for enhanced growth, yield and quality, different nutrient management in citrus is reviewed.
