Significance of nitrogen on the growth, flowering and fruiting of mango cultivars

Acta Horticulturae: 29-36

Significance of nitrogen on the growth, flowering and fruiting of mango cultivars

The three varieties examined differed considerably in growth, flowering, fruiting and fruit-quality characters. Vegetative growth, fruit set per panicle, fruit weight, acidity and ascorbic acid content were all highest in Langra. Leaf nitrogen content and fruit weight were positively correlated, as were various physical fruit characters among themselves. Sex ratio and fruit set were negatively correlated.
