Dear Sri Tapamoy

The problem can be overcome by the following practices :

Trees canopy could be managed through vario us pruning practices as indicated below
1. Lopping : This type of pruning practice is also called ‘branch pruning’
which involves removal of certain branches allowing some light to reach the
herbaceous crops underneath. It should be selective and tree productivity
depends upon the lopping intensity frequency and vigour. Intensive lopping
encourage the growth of under crops.
2. Brashing : It is also called ‘low pruning’ involves removal of side and
lower branches during initial 1-5 years to enable the tree to grow straight
which facilitates intercultural operations and allows some light penetration
to under planted arable crops.
Please contact the under signed for technical guidance and project report .
