Abstract

Studies were carried out during 1992–96 at in the orchard of All India Coordinated Research Project (Tropical fruits). For conducting of an experiment, 13 year old acid lime trees were selected in medium type soil having 1.0 to 1.5 m depth, pH 7.5 and clay 48%. 10 treatments (Soil moisture and harmones) including control were employed in randomised block designed with three replications. The effect of soil moisture stress with harmones on Hasta bahar flowering of Acid lime revealed that significantly maximum yield and better quality of fruits were observed with 30 days soil moisture stress with 50 ppm spray of ascorbic acid or deblossoming in preceding season and 30 days soil moisture stress with 10 ppm spray of GA.
