Unmanaged tree canopy not only reduces the productivity of fruits but also detoriates the quality of produce as well. Good Canopy management practices results in good sunlight penetration and good yield. It enables profitable cropping, high, regular yields and improved farm management practices, leading to higher productivity. This system of management produces high and regular yields of good quality fruits and low labour requirement to meet ever rising production costs.
