Abstract: The experiment was conducted in the orchard at the Regional Fruit Research Station, Katol, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, during the years 2021–22 and 2022–23. The study was initiated in an eleven-year-old Nagpur mandarin orchard under normal planting density (6 m x 6 m). The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with nine treatments comprising various combinations of FYM, biofertilizers, RDF and foliar sprays of micronutrients with three replications. Experimental findings revealed that integrated use of organic manures, biofertilizers and chemical fertilizers increased the fertility status of soil, influencing parameters like available nitrogen, phosphorus, Potassium, Sulphur, in the soil compared to individual applications of both organic and inorganic fertilizers or imbalanced fertilizer applications. However, the physical properties of soil have not been much affected by integrated nutrient management in a short period of time. The physical and chemical properties of soil that are not much affected are bulk density, hydraulic conductivity, maximum water holding capacity and chemical properties like pH, EC and CaCO3.
