  • Mango – the king of fruits is a most wonderful, delicious and very sweet fruit consumd by people all over the world . India is the native country where the mango fruit tree originated and being cultivated for over 4000 years

    An early traveler to India , Hsiian Tsang was the first person to bring this fruits to the notice of outside world during 632-645 A.D .The Mugal Emperors liked this mango fruits very much and Akbar the great planted an orchard of 1,00,000 mango trees .

    Mango cultivation is found in many countries of Southeast Asia – the Philippines, Indonesia, Java, Thailand, Burma, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.


    Introduction of the mango to East and West Africa and subsequently to Brazil is said to have occurred in the sixteenth century.


    Mexico acquired the mango in the nineteenth century, and it entered Florida in 1833. The cultivated mango varieties are the result of constant selection by man from original wild plants for over 4000 years.

    Now the Hi Tech cultivation method has made mango cultivation really a profitable Agriculture venture .

    ULTRA HI-DENSITY MANGO CULTIVATION ( MEADOW ORCHARD ) PLANTING WITH PER ACRE PLANT POPULATION OF 1333 NUMBERS .

    Hi-density mango cultivation involves spacing of 3 M by 1 M row to row and plant to plant spacing .

    The success of hi tech mango fruit cultivation depends on the canopy management that involves removing diseased and insect damaged , weak, criss cross , very old and unproductive branches and maintaining standard number of productive branches to produce quality fruits . The canopy managment involves periodical light pruning and occational heavy pruning to facilitate easy penetration of air and sun light through entire canopy that trigger more flowerings and convertion of most of the flowers into fruits .

    Mango is a highly cross pollinated crops and pollination is assisted by bees, wasp , winds, and gravity .

    Inspite of very large number of flowers produced in mango trees, less than 1% of flowers only turns into fruits

    Though thousands of flowers are produced in a single panicle ( flower bunches ) few flowers only set into fruits..

    TRIGGERING OF MANGO FLOWERING

    Spray Urea @ 0.5% ( 5 grams urea in 1 lit water )

    Or Pottasium Nitrate @ 1% ( 10 grams in 1 lit water )



    To increase the fruit set and retention of fruits spray 2% Potassium nitrate ( 20 grams in 1 lit water )

    Or 20 PPM NAA at flowering stage to retain fruits

    IRRIGATION MANAGEMENT

    Mango tree under meadow orchard needs 30-50 litre per tree per day . Pre flowering irrigation is avoided to induce spurting of more flower buds in mango

    The yielding potential of Meadow orchard mango cultivation is 12-15 MT per acre

sir can we implement this method in organic mango plantation.

Sure you can grow mango completely in organic methods..More over organic cultivation makes your market prospect bright in local as well as overseas countries. The reason being pure organic produce without any chemical residue , taste, keeping quality, glossy and shining appearance of mango fruits etc..

sir do we use foilar harmone spray in organic cultivation also ?
Dear Mr.P.Ram

Strictly speaking , organic cultivation does not invite outside inputs or any kind of synthetic inputs application .

Here we are talking mainly about hi tech farming that means more synthetic inputs ...Here the logic is that we produce more outputs in unit area with negligible / permissible level of chemical residue ...

Pls let me know how much time it will take to yield fruits in uttapradesh region I have 20 acre land if commercially it's viable option than I love to do this business.

dear sir,
what type of mango variety can strive well with planting distance of 3m/1m?
In Nigeria the most popular varieties are Tommy, Peter, julie and john Bull.

Many thanks

Dear Mr.Tukur

We are talking about Mango in general and there exist range of varieties developed out of 69 species that are all restricted to Asian continent .
Your specific question is which variety will be grown better in 3M by 1 M spacing ..

Any mango varieties can be planted at this spacing with the conditions as follows
1.Grafted seedlings . Should not use seedlings developed directly from seeds / nuts
2.Canopy management - Periodical pruning - heavy pruning alternated with light pruning

The mango has got symbodial branching character and it help us train mango tree canopy as it grows
In Israel indiscriminate or heavy pruning is attended - machine pruning . The mango tree has potential to regenerate .
Following pix will attest this statement ..
For example Amrapalli is a dwarf hybrid that is amenable for HDP ..However human intervention has made mango tree dwarf with grafting techniques
