Author(s): Aparna Dhulipalla
Abstract: Studies were conducted at farmers field in Putrela village, Krishna District, Andhra Pradesh from 2010 to 2013 on 10 years old mango garden having cultivars like Baneshan, Totapuri, Suvernarekha, Alphonso, Cherukurasam and hybrids like Mallika and Neeleshan planted at a closer spacing of 7.5 x 7.5 m to evaluate their performance under high density planting. Pooled analysis of four years data revealed that Baneshan recorded maximum tree height (7.1 m), tree spread in E-W (7.29 m) and N-S directions (7.23 m). Neeleshan recorded highest number of fruits/tree (205.76) whereas Mallika recorded maximum fruit weight of 390.31g. The maximum yield of 66.76 kg/tree was recorded by Totapuri. Mallika was found to be the sweetest with highest TSS of 15.35 0B. During early productive phase it can be concluded that among varieties Totapuri was found to perform better than the rest of the varieties and among the two hybrids Neeleshan was found to perform better under high density planting systems for better productivity.
