Chemical control of growth and flowering in Mangifera indica L


, : Chemical control of growth and flowering in Mangifera indica L. Acta Horticulturae (24): 192-195

Chlormequat and aminozide, each at 1000, 2000 or 4000 p.p.m., were applied to 4- and 21-year-old mango cvs Langra (alternate bearing) and Baramasia (regular bearing). Chlormequat treatments significantly reduced growth, irrespective of plant age or cv., promoted flowering in both cvs but particularly in Langra, and had a beneficial effect on fruit set and retention in young Langra plants only.
