Effect of planting space and pruning intensity in mango (Mangifera indica L.) cv. Amrapali
Author(s): Abdul Majid Ansari, Ekhlaque Ahmad, BK Bhagat and DN Singh
Abstract: Spacing of plantation as well as intensity of pruning both showed significant effect in the hybrid mango cv. Amrapali. Spacing with 5m x 5m gave significantly higher fruit yield per plant (51.778 kg) and 50% pruning gave significantly higher yield per plant (39.833 kg). Interaction between spacing and intensity of pruning also showed significant effect and treatment combination ‘5m x 5m + 50% pruning’ gave significantly higher fruit yield per plant (65.33 kg). In terms of fruit yield per hectare, which is more important while comparing of different spacing of mango plantation, spacing showed non-significant effect whereas, pruning as well as their interaction effect showed significant effect because of number of plants per hectare increases with the decreasing of spacing and vice-versa. 50% pruning gave significantly higher fruit yield per hectare (289.78 q) and best treatment combination was ‘2.5m x 2.5m + 50% pruning’ with the highest fruit yield per hectare (349.33 q). On the basis of these observations it is suggested that ultra-high density plantation of mango cv. Amrapali may be pruned up to 50% foliage just after fruit harvesting in the month of first week of July for better fruit yield.
