Effect of KNO3 sprays to flowering mango trees on fruit retention, fruit size, tree yield, and fruit quality



Effect of KNO3 sprays to flowering mango trees on fruit retention, fruit size, tree yield, and fruit quality



Acta Horticulturae ( 455): 359-366



In South Africa, the mango cultivars Tommy Atkins, Kent and Heidi retain few fruits compared with Sensation, Irwin and Keitt. During 1993, the effects on fruit retention, fruit size, tree yield, and fruit quality of KNO3 applications to flowering 2- to 3-year-old Tommy Atkins, Kent and Heidi trees were investigated. A KNO3 spray at 2 or 4% was administered either once, when inflorescences were flowering, or twice, when inflorescences were actively extending and when they were flowering.
