Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study the performance of different mango varieties for flowering and fruiting attributes under high density planting. Among the varieties evaluated wide variations were observed, with respect to flowering characteristics variety Kesar recorded maximum number of panicles (79.79) and panicle length (40.22 cm) whereas, minimum number of panicles per plant and panicle length was recorded in Amrapali (52.48 and 34.13 cm respectively). The variety Totapuri recorded maximum panicle width (28.17 cm), number of hermaphrodite flowers per panicle (260.34). whereas, minimum panicle width (23.00) was recorded in Alphonso and no. of hermaphrodite flowers/panicle was in Kesar (116.78). In case of fruiting characteristics maximum fruit set percent was recorded in Totapuri (6.80%) while minimum was in Kesar (5.17). The number of fruits per plant was highest in (48.10) and minimum was in (31.15) fruit yield was recorded highest in Mallika (10.15 kg/plant) and lowest in Amrapali (4.97 kg/plant). Out of five varieties evaluated Mallika has produced desirable fruits with high yield which makes it suitable for high density planting system.
