Nutrient status of peach leaf as affected by intercrops

Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 54(5): 450-451

Nutrient status of peach leaf as affected by intercrops

Mid-shoot leaves (with petioles) of the Flordasun were collected in mid-June from the crown periphery of young non-bearing trees intercropped with 6 crop species and the contents of N, P, K, Zn, Cu, Mn and Fe were determined. The data are tabulated. Leaf N was high (2%) in trees intercropped with soyabeans and pineapples and very low (0.94%) in trees intercropped with lemon grass Leaf P and K were below normal level in all variants.
