We are providing mango plants. Mango Farming is the leading fruit crop farming of India and considered to be the king of fruits. Besides delicious taste, excellent flavour and attractive fragrance, it is rich in vitamin A & C.The tree is hardy in nature and requires comparatively low maintenance costs.
Planting Season in Mango Farming:
Planting is usually done in the month of July-August in rained areas and during February-March in irrigated areas. In case of heavy rainfall zones, planting is taken up at the end of rainy season.
Mango Farming Nutrition:
Fertilisers may be applied in two split doses , one half immediately after the harvesting of fruits in June/July and the other half in October, in both young and old orchards followed by irrigation if there are no rains. Foliar application of 3 % urea in sandy soils is recommended before flowering.
Irrigation or Watering in Mango Farming:
Young plants are watered frequently for proper establishment. In case of grown up trees, irrigation at 10 to 15 days interval from fruit set to maturity is beneficial for improving yield. However, irrigation is not recommended for 2-3 months prior to flowering as it is likely to promote vegetative growth at the expense of flowering.
The mango tree grows in tropical climates. Extended exposure to temperatures below 30°F can kill or severely damage a mango tree, so in the U.S. they are only able to grow in the southernmost portions of Florida and California. Fortunately, mangos are cultivated all around the tropical regions of the globe so Americans can enjoy the delicious fruit year round.
A mango tree can grow quite large, reaching a height of 100 feet or more with a canopy of 35 feet or more. Mangos in cultivation are generally pruned and kept much smaller for a more manageable harvest. The large leaves are leathery, five to 16 inches in length, and remain on the tree for a year or more. Flowers are produced in terminal panicles or clusters four to 16 inches long. Each flower is small with white petals and a mild sweet aroma. The flowers are pollinated by insects and less than 1% of the flowers will mature to form a fruit. A mango tree in full flower is a beautiful sight indeed.
Certain mangos on each tree will receive more sunlight than others, with some fruit staying shaded within the tree’s canopy. In certain varieties, the mangos that receive the most sunlight will develop a red blush at the stem end. This red blush is not an indicator of maturity, quality or ripeness.
It takes approximately four months for the mangos to mature on the tree before they’re ready for harvest. During that time, the fruit-laden branches of the mango tree may bow under the weight of the developing mangos. Each fruit is harvested by hand, providing jobs for local workers and a safe passage to the packinghouse for the mangos.
The growth of the tree causes a process called carbon sequestration or carbon uptake. The tree absorbs CO², also known as carbon dioxide, from the environment, using it to form the trunk, branches, leaves and fruit of the mango tree. The tree produces oxygen and releases it into the environment during this process.
