Abstract

The present studies on “growth, productivity and quality of ber (Zizyphus mauritiana Lamk.) cv. ‘Umran’ in relation with soil applications of phosphorus and potassium” were carried out at Fruit Research Farm, Department of Fruit Science, Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana during the year 2014-15. Twelve years old ‘Umran’ ber plants growing under uniform cultural practices underwent various phosphorus and potassium fertilizer treatments. Three levels each of phosphorus (1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 kg SSP/plant) and potassium (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 kg MOP/plant) were applied as soil application. Various physiological parameters (vegetative growth, fruit size, fruit weight, fruit yield, fruit drop) and bio chemical parameters (soluble solids, sugars, titratable acidity, ascorbic acid) were recorded. There was no significant effect of the treatments on the growth parameters of the ber trees. However, the fruit parameters were significantly affected. The treatment T7 (1.0 kg SSP + 1.5 kg MOP) showed min i mum fruit drop. The treatment T6 (2.0 kg SSP + 1.0 kg MOP) showed maximum fruit yield, fruit weight, TSS and matured the earliest.
