Abstract:

The main objective of this study was to know the reproductive behaviour of lemon (Citrus limon Burm.) affected by different pruning intensities and integrated nutrient management under various growing season. The experiment was laid out in two factorial Randomized Block Design with four levels of pruning, seven levels of nutrient, consisting recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) and different combinations of organic manure (Vermicompost), inorganic fertilizer, bio-fertilizer (Azotobacter), mycorrhiza (VAM) and their interaction to study their effect on plant reproductive behaviour during 2013 to 2015 on 9 year old lemon plants in three growing seasons. The investigation revealed that the reproductive parameters viz. number of flowers per plant, fruit set percentage and fruit yield were found highest in lightly pruned plants feed with 75% RDF + Vermicompost + Azotobacter + Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza at Ambe, Mrig and Hasth bahar respectively. Among the three season of cropping Ambe bahar recorded the best result in respect to yield followed by Mrig and Hasth bahar.
