PAKISTAN : MANGO ORCHARD MANAGEMENT OF OLDER TREES ..





A very strange physiological phenomenon "Florigen concept" in mangoes...........especially in Pakistan........large size trees, older in age, pests & diseases, no pruning so no vegetative synchronization, no zero till, intercropping, improper & out of ballance fertilization, no control over irrigation, etc......a complete absence of mango tree management system........."first bud burst to final bud burst" let's say 20th Nov & first week of March........and mixed panicles..........what about fruit setting, fruit growth & development, local climatic conditions, nutrition & irrigation etc?.........harvest maturity & final harvesting.................it is very difficult to obtain good quality from such management systems.








11th Janurary 2013............the buds on these terminals burst open...............and today it is 15th January 2013....














17th December 2012............the buds on these terminals burst open...............and today it is 15th January 2013....













5th December 2012............the buds on these terminals burst open...............and today it is 15th January 2013......












26th November 2012............the buds on these terminals burst open...............and today it is 15th January 2013.................
















Mango Terminals like these may need foliar application of KNO3 "potassium nitrate" 1-2%............to break dormancy............












I am sure those who understand mangoes may appreciate this image...........Fungicide & an insecticide were applied  at this stage.............before it.....KNO3 through soil application followed by light irrigation......Boron & Zinc through Foliar sprays...........

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
