Abstract: The present investigation was carried on to trace mode of action of varieties, lime application and mode of nutrient supply system on growth pattern of developing litchi orchard. The variety Purvi performs better over early Bedana in all the growth parameters except spread where in the two verities behaved similarly. Lime was not observed to have marked effect on a height, spread, girth and branches of plants. But plants getting slacked lime had more no. of leaves (56 leaves/plant) against (50.34) under control, higher leaf per plant (6963 cm2) against (6710 cm2) under control and LAI of 1.05 against 1.01 under control. Amongst growth factors initially 100% nutrition through inorganic sources had the best expression but by the end of 24rth month 50:50 nutrition in organic-inorganic form over to 100% inorganic source. The treatment having 100% organic source though FYM had the most subdued expression.
