Abstract:
Noni (<em>Morinda citrifolia</em> L.)- A member of the family rubiaceae is an evergreen tropical tree native of South East Asia. It mostly grows as wild in tropical parts of the world and its systematic cultivation is lacking in India. Very little has been done on standardization of agronomic practices in noni. Nutrition is a key factor influencing yield and quality in crop plants. The study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of nutrition on noni fruit yield and the cost economics were worked out. Among Seven treatment combinations, treatment T<sub>5 </sub>(50:225:50 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> NPK wherein 50% of recommended P given through bone meal)<sub> </sub>and T<sub>7</sub> (50:225:50 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> NPK wherein 100% of recommended P given through bone meal) have proven best in terms of fruit yield. The treatment T<sub>3 </sub>(50:225:50 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> NPK) recorded highest B:C ratio of 3.85 followed by T<sub>4 </sub>(50:100:100 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> NPK-50% of recommended P through bone meal)<sub> </sub>i.e. 3.07.
