Fruit yield and cost of production in noni (Morinda citrifolia L.) as influenced by integrated nutrient management
Author(s): Bhoomika HR and Vasundhara M
Abstract: Noni (Morinda citrifolia 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 T5 (50:225:50 kg ha-1 NPK wherein 50% of recommended P given through bone meal) and T7 (50:225:50 kg ha-1 NPK wherein 100% of recommended P given through bone meal) have proven best in terms of fruit yield. The treatment T3 (50:225:50 kg ha-1 NPK) recorded highest B:C ratio of 3.85 followed by T4 (50:100:100 kg ha-1 NPK-50% of recommended P through bone meal) i.e. 3.07.
