Gollagi SG, Jasmitha BG and Sreekanth HS
The ability of the crops to produce fruits throughout year is of great interest in recent years. The biennial bearing is very serious problem in fruit crop production. Therefore, application of paclobutrazol is most widely studied in view of its high potential for controlling plant growth and development of fruit crops in general. Usually it is applied as a soil application in the month of September-November in case of mango. It inhibits gibberellin biosynthesis at kaurene stage and has proved to be reduction of vegetative growth, promising for flower initiation in shoot bud, giving early and profuse flowering, increases fruit yield and improving quality regularly in alternate bearing cultivars. The main aim of this review is to focus upon contemporary information about paclobutrazol in fruit production.
