Abstract:
An investigation entitled “Effect of micronutrient fortified Konkan Annapurna Briquettes on yield of Alphonso mango (<em>Mangifera indica</em> L.) in lateritic soils of Konkan” was undertaken in mango orchard of Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Dapoli during the year 2016-17 and 2017-18. The field experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications and ten treatments comprising of absolute control (T<sub>1</sub>), Recommended Dose of Fertilizers (RDF) (T<sub>2</sub>), RDF + copper through copper sulphate @ 15 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> (T<sub>3</sub>), RDF + boron through borax @ 10 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> (T<sub>4</sub>), RDF + molybdenum through sodium molybdate @ 0.250 kg ha<sup>-1</sup><sub></sub>(T<sub>5</sub>), RDF + copper through copper sulphate @ 15 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + boron through borax @ 10 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + molybdenum through sodium molybdate @ 0.250 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> (T<sub>6</sub>), 100 per cent RDN through Konkan Annapurna Briquettes (KAB) (T<sub>7</sub>), 100 per cent RDN + copper through copper sulphate @ 15 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + boron through borax @ 10 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + molybdenum through sodium molybdate @ 0.250 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> through Konkan Annapurna Briquettes (KAB) (T<sub>8</sub>), 80 per cent RDN + copper through copper sulphate @ 15 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + boron through borax @ 10 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + molybdenum through sodium molybdate @ 0.250 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> through Konkan Annapurna Briquettes (KAB) (T<sub>9</sub>) and 60 per cent RDN + copper through copper sulphate @ 15 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + boron through borax @ 10 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + molybdenum through sodium molybdate @ 0.250 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> through Konkan Annapurna Briquettes (KAB) (T<sub>10</sub>) and FYM @ 50 kg tree<sup>-1</sup> was applied to all the treatments. The application of 50 kg FYM tree<sup>-1</sup> + 100 per cent Recommended Dose of Nitrogen + copper through copper sulphate @ 15 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + boron through borax @ 10 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> + molybdenum through sodium molybdate @ 0.250 kg ha<sup>-1</sup> through Konkan Annapurna Briquettes (T<sub>8</sub>) recorded the significantly highest mango yield per tree (67.53 kg tree<sup>-1</sup> in first year and 80.07 kg tree<sup>-1</sup> in second year) and maximum number of fruits (271.04 in first year and 304.37 in second year). The treatment T<sub>1</sub> <em>i.e.</em> absolute control recorded the significantly lowest mango yield per tree (21.62 kg tree<sup>-1</sup> in first year and 19.63 kg tree<sup>-1</sup> in second year) and minimum number of fruits (97.03 in first year and 83.70 in second year).
