A team of scientists from The Australian mango industry visited Jain Irrigation Research farm in Udumalpet, Tamil Nad and interacted with Senior Scientists of Jain Irrigation on December 1. 

The focus of the Australian team was to discuss the High technology Production package, Ultrahigh Density Mango that Jains have successfully developed and extended to Indian farmers. 

HIA is set to benefit from a new agreement signed today between (HIA) and the Jain Irrigation systems (JISL), India. David Cliff, director HIA and P.Soman, head of research and Extension Jain Irrigation signed the MOU in presence of the team of scientists.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will allow researchers from JISL and Australian agencies to undertake joint R&D in horticulture for the first time through HIA.

JISL is a major multinational company based in India engaged in agriculture business worldwide including Australia. It has a cutting edge R&D program servicing horticulture industries. 

While signing the agreement, The HIA Director said, ''Mango is an important crop for both countries. However, until now, there is no formal relationship between two countries to address key research issues in mango. Working collaboratively will benefit both countries as we identify research gaps and potential opportunities.''

It is acknowledged that JISL has made significant strides on commercial scale in Ultra High Density Planting Systems and developing techniques for Tissue Culture of Mango and Genetic Transformation of Mango.

Both JISL and HIA have committed to explore other areas of research in a number of horticultural crops.

Shares of the company gained Rs 0.7, or 0.87%, to trade at Rs 81. The total volume of shares traded was 76,929 at the BSE (10.44 a.m., Tuesday).

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

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
