The Agriculture University has its Headquarter at Borkhera Farm, Kota & is located on Kota-Baran National highway-76. Kota district is situated in the South-Eastern part of Rajasthan and comes under Humid South-Eastern Plain Zone (agro climatic zone V). It lies between 23045’ and 26038’ North latitude and 75037’ and 77026’ East longitude. The jurisdiction of AUK is spread over in 6 districts namely Kota, Baran, Bundi, Jhalawar, Karauli and Sawai Madhopur. It accounts for 9.98 % geographical area, 12.67 % total human population, 9.4 % live stock population, 31.59 % forest area and 20.6 % net sown area of the state. Development and education of modern practices in the field of Agriculture, Horticulture & Forestry for sustainable livelihood of the rural masses is the main thrust of the service area of AUK.

    EFFECT OF ZINC AND VERMICOMPOST ON GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF GUAVA (Psidium guajava L.) CV. SARDAR
    (College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar, 2021-12-31) YADAV, ANJU; Bhatnagar, Prerak
    The present investigations entitled “Effect of Zinc and Vermicompost on growth and development of guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv. Sardar” was carried out at the Fruit Research Farm, Department of Fruit Science, college of horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar during October 2020 to March 2021. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with replicated thrice. The experiment consisted of sixteen treatment combinations having three levels each of Zinc (0.2%, 0.4% and 0.6%) and Vermicompost (4.5, 6 and 7.5kg/plant). From the experiment it appeared that among the different treatment combinations of Zinc and Vermicompost, the highest dose of T16 treatment ( ZnSO4 @ 0.6% + Vermicompost @ 7.5kg/plant) was found significantly superior over other treatments with respect to growth parameters such as maximum per cent increase in plant height(24.80%), E-W plant spread(23.94 %), north-south plant spread(24.32%), number of shoots per plant(53.10%), leaf length(85.94%), leaf width(53.94%), canopy volume(52.50%), rootstock girth(28.80%), scion girth(23.00%), number of nodes per plant (65.97%) and carboxylation parameters such as photosynthetic rate(6.58 μmolCO2m-2s-1), photosynthetic active radiation(1003.33mmolm-2 s-1), stomatal conductance(50.66 mmolm-2s-1), relative humidity of leaves (6.46%), leaf temperature (22.01˚C) and minimum vapour pressure deficit (21.14 mb). However, maximum increment in number of leaves per shoot was found in T6 (Vermicompost @ 6.0 kg/plant).

    EFFECT OF IRRIGATION SCHEDULE AND FERTIGATION LEVEL ON GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF MANDARIN (Citrus reticulata Blanco.) CV. NAGPUR MANDARIN
    (College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar, 2021-12-31) KUMAR, SANDEEP; Singh, Jitendra
    The field experiment entitled “Effect of irrigation schedule and fertigation level on growth and development of mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco.) cv. Nagpur Mandarin” was conducted deploying 10 treatments in RBD with four replications covering 160 plants in all during two successive years commencing from March, 2019 to February, 2021 at the Instructional Farm, Department of Fruit Science, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar, Rajasthan. The experiment revealed that among various irrigation schedule treatments, application of treatment I1 (100% ETc) was observed significantly superior over other treatments with regard to growth and development parameters in which the increase in height of plant was 43.06%, in plant volume 2.39%, in number of leaves per shoot 53.63%, in number of branches per plant 2.06%, in leaf area 2.17%, in leaf NPK content particularly N: 2.53%, P: 0.23%, K: 1.72% and maximum leaf chlorophyll content (2.39 mg/g), besides minimum leaf proline content (7.75μg/g) were observed under this treatment I1 (100% ETc). The treatment I1 (100% ETc) was found better in improvement of the soil parameters (0-15 cm depth) including soil pH (7.19), EC (0.46 dSm-1), organic carbon (0.53%), porosity (52.77%), available N (319.33 kg ha-1), P (24.58 kg ha-1), K (290.92 kg ha-1) and microbial population in soil (Bacteria 18.17 x 106 CFU/g soil and Fungi 12.62 x 104 CFU/g soil). As regard to individual effect of fertigation, maximum plant height (47.11%), plant volume (2.47), number of leaves per shoot (61.45%), number of branches per plant (2.07%), leaf area (2.23%), leaf NPK content (N: 2.56% P: 0.23%, K: 1.75%) along with leaf chlorophyll content (2.41 mg/g), besides minimum leaf proline content (9.50μg/g) were observed under the treatment F1 (100% RDF). The treatment F1 (100% RDF) was found better in improvement of the soil physical and chemical properties including soil pH (7.16), EC (0.47 dSm-1), organic carbon (0.55%), porosity (53.08%), N (322.58 kg ha-1) P (26.10 kg ha-1) and K (295.25 kg ha-1). However, better influenceon microbial population (Bacteria 19.33 x 106 CFU/g soil and Fungi 13.78 x 104 CFU/g soil) was found under treatment F3 (60% RDF). Among the interaction of irrigation schedule and fertigation levels, all plant parameters were observed significantly superior except number of branches per plant and petiole length in treatment I1F1 (Irrigation Scheduling at 100 % ETc + Fertigation 100 % RDF) while treatment I2F1 (Irrigation Scheduling at 80 % ETc + Fertigation 100 % RDF) was registered at par with it in most of the parameters studied. In treatment I2F1 at par to maximum values in all parameters were recorded in which increase in height of plant was 49.32%, in leaf area 2.30%, in leaf NPK content particularly N: 2.57% P: 0.23%, K: 1.78% and the leaf chlorophyll content was 2.43 mg/g, besides minimum leaf proline content was observed (9.25μg/g) under this treatment. Further, this treatment was found better in improvement of soil parameters at 0-15 cm depth such as soil pH (7.14), EC (0.48 dSm-1), organic carbon (0.56%), porosity (53.27%), besides N (326.25 kg ha-1), P (27.05 kg ha-1) and K (297.75 kg ha-1). The soil microbial population (Bacteria 20.75 x 106 CFU/g soil and Fungi 15.20 x 104 CFU/g soil at 0-15cm depth of soil) had significantly better improvement in treatment I1F3 (Irrigation Scheduling at 100 % ETc + Fertigation 60 % RDF). Summarizingly, from the present investigation it may be concluded that I2F1 treatment (Irrigation Scheduling at 80 % ETc + Fertigation 100 % RDF) was better over all other treatments. There had been water saving of 580.54 litres per irrigation per hectare which calculates to 76631.28 litres per hectare all along 132 irrigations supplied under fertigation treatment of mandarin at the average cumulative pan evaporation of 24.14 mm in comparison to I1F1 (Irrigation Scheduling at 100 % ETc + Fertigation 100 % RDF). Further, under this treatment (I2F1: Irrigation Scheduling at 80 % ETc + Fertigation 100 % RDF) over all better plant growth parameters as well as soil properties were also recorded.

    Effect of different doses of bio-stimulants on growth and development of Guava (Psidium guajava L) cv. Sardar
    (College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar, 2021-12-31) Gurjar, Jitendra; Singh, Jitendra
    A field experiment entitled “Effect of different doses of bio-stimulants on growth and development of guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv. sardar‟‟ was conducted during the year 2020-21, at the Instructional Farm, Department of Fruit Science, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar. The experiment consisted of 19 treatments laid out in Randomized Block Design with three replications.Among different bio-stimulants treatments, T12 humic acid 15g + seaweed 60g was found significantly superior over all other treatments with respect to most of the plant growth and development parametres besides better soil physicochemical and biological properties. The plant growth characters viz. plant height (53.32%), canopy spread E-W (48.59%), canopy spread N-S (68.98%), rootstock girth (19.81%), scion girth (19.60%), number of leaves/plant (75.87%), number of shoots/plant (81.54%), length of internodes (71.768 %), number of nodes/branch (47.89%), number of leaves/shoot (31.01%), and number of shoots/branch (35.63%), leaf length (30.95%), leaf width (39.26%), leaf area (61.43%), length of internodes (71.77%), proline content in leaf (4.95%), relative water content (97.57%) and leaf N, P, K content (2.99%), (0.33%), (1.99%). The T12 treatment was found better in improving the soil parameters including organic carbon percentage, available N, P and K content of soil and was found significantly superior over other treatments. Like-wise, soil pH and electrical conductivity also had significant moderation under this treatment. The treatment T11 (Humic acid 15g + Seaweed 50g) was in next order in its impact on vegetative growth and developmental parameters of guava plant besides better soil parameters of the orchard under the study.
