Abstract

Lemon is leading acid citrus fruit because of its very appealing colour, odour and flavour, however, the summer crop has been observed to be prone to severe fruit cracking. The present study showing influence of foliar application of growth regulator (NAA) and nutrients (K2SO4 and Borax) on fruit cracking in lemon (Citrus limon (L.) Burm.) cv. Baramasi” was conducted at "Punjab Government Progeny Orchard & Nursery, Attari, Amritsar" during the fruiting years 2005 and 2006 with a view to manage fruit cracking in lemon. An experiment comprising of seven treatments replicated four times, consisted of foliar sprays of NAA (40 ppm), K2SO4 (8%) and Borax (1%), singly and in combinations. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design. The maximum decrease in fruit cracking viz. 59.43 per cent during 2005 and 63.48 per cent during 2006 was observed in treatment T7. The application of growth regulator and nutrient sources collectively proved to be most effective for minimising this malady in Baramasi lemon under Punjab conditions.
