Ultra high density planting of mango in Telangana: Prospects and problems

Dr. IV Srinivasa Reddy
Ultra high density planting (UHDP) (4 x 2 m) aims to make maximum use of land to achieve high yields in the entire life of orchard along with ease in its management. This system warrants adoption of certain important technologies like formative pruning in the initial years so as to have desirable plant architecture, proper canopy management annually to encourage vegetative growth immediate after harvest, stopping of the vegetative growth during September to favour fruit bud initiation and differentiation. Further, adoption of drip irrigation system so as to replenish the loss of moisture through evapo-transpiration and providing nutrients at required quantity at appropriate doses through fertigation technique are highly essential to get higher yield with quality fruits. Thus, it is imperative that once in Telangana UHDP is adopted; the related technologies like formative pruning to develop proper plant architecture and annual canopy management are to be followed regularly. Besides, providing optimum irrigation through drip to replenish moisture loss through evapo transpiration and proper fertigation practices to provide balanced vegetative growth and fruiting, are highly essential so as to get higher yield of mango in Telangana.
