Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted on annual moringa (Moringa oliefera Lam.) cv. PKM 1 to elucidate the influence of canopy management and chemical manipulation to induce off season flowering and fruiting. Among the various treatments, the plants mulched with 50 micron polyethylene mulch, pruned during the month of July and sprayed with 50 ppm Uniconazole (one and two months after pruning ) combination resulted in early induction of off season flowering and subsequent fruit set. The result indicated that the plants grown with above mentioned produced more number of flowers per panicle, more number of panicle per plant, higher fruit set (%) and fruit yield per tree when compared with other treatments during off season.
