Orange (Malta)

Irrigation should be continued to maintain the Orange (Malta) fruit set of Ambia fruits. The frequency of the irrigation should be increased at 6-7 days intervals due to the ensuing summer season and high temperature. In Nagpur mandarin and the sweet orange one-year-old tree should be given twice the amount and 3 yrs old tree given thrice the amount. 8-year-old tree should be given 163 liters/day/tree while 10 yrs and above aged tree should be irrigated with 204 @ litres/day/tree. In acid lime(lemon)one year tree should be given 11 liters water/day/tree, 2 yrs tree be given 16 litres water/day/ tree, 8 yrs tree be given 65 litres/day/ tree while 10 yrs and above tree should be given 100 litres of water every day.

 

During summer months mulching around tree trunk up to 5-10 cm should be done with wheat straw, paddy straw or uprooted weeds so that, evaporation of water due to high temperature can be minimized which helps in reducing fruit crop.

 

Fertilizer should be applied at the rate of 108g urea or 250g ammonium sulphate and 157g l.c. single superphosphate along with 25g zinc sulphate, 25g ferrous sulphate and 25g manganese sulphate for one year old plant. For 2,3, and 4 years trees the rate should be two, three and four times of the quantity recommended for one year tree. Apply 20 to 25 kg farm yard manure to each tree in the soil. These fertilizers and FYM should be applied along the periphery of trees with care that fertilizers are applied to moist soil only.

 

During April month, incidence of bark eating caterpillar is commonly seen, more menacing on old orchards. To control the pest, remove the wooden frass and then inject 5-10 ml of dichlorovos prepared by mixing 3-4 ml of DDVP 76 EL in one liter water with the help of disposable syringe and cover the larval tunnel with a cotton wool.

 

Incidence of mites takes an alarming shape during this month. To combat this pest, spray of dicofol 1.8EC @ 2 ml or propargite 1 ml per litre of water may be sprayed. Repeat second spray after 15 days interval.
