Commodity -1 MANGO

Mango (Mangifera indica L.) belonging to Family Anacardiaceae is the
most important commercially grown fruit crop of the country. It is called the
king of fruits. India has the richest collection of mango cultivars.

3.1 Origin
ultivation of mango is believed to have originated in !.". Asia. Mango is
being cultivated in southern Asia for nearly si# thousand years.
3.2 Area & Production

India ranks first among world$s mango producing countries accounting for
about %&' of the world$s mango production. (ther ma)or mango producing
countries include hina* +hailand* Me#ico* ,akistan* ,hilippines* Indonesia** /igeria and "gypt. India$s share is around %0' of world production.

An increasing trend has been observed in world mango production averaging
00 million metric tonnes per year. 1orldwide production is mostly
concentrated in Asia* accounting for 2%' followed by !outh and /orthern
America with about 3&' share.

3.3 !cono"ic I"#ortance

+he fruit is very popular with the masses due to its wide range of
adaptability* high nutritive value* richness in variety* delicious taste and
e#cellent flavour. It is a rich source of vitamin A and . +he fruit is
consumed raw or ripe. 6ood mango varieties contain 0&' of total soluble
sugars. +he acid content of ripe desert fruit varies from &.0 to &.% ' and
protein content is about 3 '.
;aw fruits of local varieties of mango trees are used for preparing various
traditional products like raw slices in brine* amchur* pickle* murabba*
chutney* panhe (sharabat) etc. ,resently* the raw fruit of local varieties of
mango are used for preparing pickle and raw slices in brine on commercial
scale while fruits of Alphonso variety are used for s<uash in coastal western
+he wood is used as timber* and dried twigs are used for religious purposes.
+he mango kernel also contains about =53&' good <uality fat which can be
used for saponification. Its starch is used in confectionery industry.
Mango also has medicinal uses. +he ripe fruit has fattening* diuretic and
la#ative properties. It helps to increase digestive capacity.
Among internationally traded tropical fruits* mango ranks only second to
pineapple in <uantity and value. Ma)or markets for fresh and dried mangoes
were: Malaysia* >apan* !ingapore* 9ong 7ong and the /etherlands* while
for canned mango were: /etherlands* Australia* 8nited 7ingdom* 6ermany*
France and 8!A.
!outheast Asian buyers consume mangoes all year round. +heir supplies
come mainly from India* ,akistan* Indonesia* +hailand* Malaysia*
,hilippines* Australia and most recently !outh Africa.
"ach e#porting country has its own varieties* which differ in shape* colour
and flavour. ,rices are very low for Indonesian and +hailand fruit and are on
the higher side for Indian fruit. In the 8nited !tates of America* the prices
vary with the season* higher prices found during February and March* when
mango availability is lowest.
Most international trade in fresh mangoes takes place within short distances.

A%ian "ar$et. !outheast Asian countries get most of their supplies from
the ,hilippines and +hailand. "uropean 8nion buyers source mangoes from
!outh America and Asia. Although Asia accounts for 2% percent of world
production* its dominance does not translate into international trade.
(.1.2 Internationa )ar$et% *or Indian )ango
Asian producers find it easier to e#pand sales to the "uropean 8nion.
"urope$s acceptance of different varieties is greater* because of a large
demand from Asian immigrant groups. ,hytosanitary restrictions are less
stringent. +ransportation costs are not as big a factor in e#porting mangoes
to the "uropean 8nion as in e#porting to the 8nited !tates market: for
e#ample* India and ,akistan are able to compete with non5Asian suppliers to
the "uropean 8nion* whereas pro#imity gives Me#ico and 9aiti a clear
advantage in supplying to the 8nited !tates market.
Fifty5four percent of "uropean 8nion imports enter during the periods May
to >uly and /ovember to ?ecember* with peak imports in >une. French
imports reach peak in April and May* whereas 8nited 7ingdom imports are

growers and those involved in its marketing channel.
Creation o* e%%entia in*ra6%tructure for preservation* cold storage*
refrigerated transportation* rapid transit* grading* processing* packaging and
<uality control are the important aspects which needs more attention.
+here is need for developing processing industries in the southern region of
the country where post harvest losses in handling and marketing are higher.
+here is scope to establish mango preservation factories in cooperative
sector. Mango growers cooperatives on the lines of Mahamango need to
encouraged to come up in ma)or mango producing !tates. +his will add to
their income through processing and create additional employment
opportunities for the rural people.
onsiderable amount of waste material* e.g* mango stones* peels remain
unutili.ed which can be used properly by the processors to earn more profit.
+his will also help to improve sanitary conditions around factory premises.
;.1 Agro6ci"atic re<uire"ent%
Mango is well adapted to tropical and sub5tropical climates. It thrives well in
almost all the regions of the country but cannot be grown commercially in
areas above 4&& m. It cannot stand severe frost* especially when the tree is
young. 9igh temperature by itself is not so in)urious to mango* but in
combination with low humidity and high winds* it affects the tree adversely.
Mango varieties usually thrive well in places with rainfall in the range of 2%5
B2% cm. Hannum and dry season. +he distribution of rainfall is more
important than its amount. ?ry weather before blossoming is conducive to
profuse flowering. ;ain during flowering is detrimental to the crop as it
interferes with pollination. 9owever* rain during fruit development is good
but heavy rains cause damage to ripening fruits. !trong winds and cyclones
during fruiting season can play havoc as they cause e#cessive fruit drop.
Loamy* alluvial* well drained* aerated and deep soils rich in organic matter
with a p9 range of %.% to 2.% are ideal for mango cultivation.

;.( Panting
;.(.1 Panting )ateria
Mango can be propagated from seed or propagated vegetatively. ,lants are
generally propagated vegetatively by using several techni<ues like veneer
grafting* inarching and epicotyl grafting etc.
;.(.2 Panting 5ea%on
,lanting is usually done in the month of >uly5August in rainfed areas and
during February5March in irrigated areas. In case of heavy rainfall .ones*
planting is taken up at the end of rainy season.
;.(.3 5#acing
+he planting distance is 3&m. # 3&m. and 30m. # 30m. in dry and moist
.ones respectively. In the model scheme* a spacing of =m. # =m. with a
population of 4B plants per acre has been considered which was observed to
be common in areas covered during a field study.

;.; Training o* Pant%
+raining of plants in the initial stages of growth is very important to give
them a proper shape specially in cases where the graft has branched too low.

;.2 Nutrition
Fertili.ers may be applied in two split doses * one half immediately after the
harvesting of fruits in >uneH>uly and the other half in (ctober* in both young
and old orchards followed by irrigation if there are no rains. Foliar
application of B ' urea in sandy soils is recommended before flowering.
+he following table gives the details of applied (depending upon
the age of the plants) :
Age of the plant
(in years)
Fertilizer applied
45 466g+ ., 76g+ P8-7, 466g+ K8-
46 4kg+ ., 766g+ P8-7, 4kg+ K8-
44 1do1
5The doses applied in the subsequent years should be increased every year upto
10 years in the multiple of the first year’s dose.
1ell decomposed farm5yard manure may be applied every year. For trench
application of fertili.ers* J&&g. each of / and 7
( and 0&&g. of ,
plant should be provided. Micro5nutrients may be applied as per the
re<uirement in the form of foliar sprays.
;.. Irrigation
+he fre<uency and amount of irrigation to be provided depends on the type
of soil* prevailing climatic conditions* rainfall and its distribution and lastly
the age of the trees. /o irrigation is re<uired during the monsoon months
unless there are long spells of drought.

Fre<uent irrigation during 05B months prior to the flowering season is not
advisable as it is likely to promote vegetative growth at the e#pense of
flowering. Irrigation should be given at %&' field capacity. 6enerally inter5
crops are grown during the early years of plantation and hence fre<uency
and method of irrigation has to be ad)usted accordingly. +he method usually
followed for irrigating mango plants is basin irrigation. 9owever* use of
?rip Irrigation will not only reduce the water re<uirements but will also help
in fertigation in root .ones of the plants.
;.3 Intercutura O#eration%
+he fre<uency and the time of inter5culture operations vary with age of the
orchards and e#istence of inter5crops. +he weed problem may not e#ist
immediately after planting the mango crop but it is advisable to break the
crust with hand hoe each time after 3&53% irrigations are applied. In case of
mono5cropping* the area between the basins should be ploughed at least
three times in a year i.e. during the pre5monsoon* post5monsoon period and
in the last week of /ovember.
;./ Inter6cro##ing
Intercropping can be taken up till the mango trees attain suitable height and
develop canopy (at %54 years of age).Leguminous crops like green gram*
black gram* gram etc.* cereals like wheat* oilseeds like mustard* sesame and
groundnut* vegetable crops such as cabbage* cauliflower* tomato* potato*
brin)al* cucumber* pumpkin* bitter gourd* tinda* lady$s finger etc. and spices
like chillies can be grown as intercrops. +he partial shade loving crops like
pineapple* ginger* turmeric etc. can be cultivated in fully grown orchards. In
addition to field crops* some short duration * less e#haustive and dwarf type
inter5 fillers like papaya* guava* peach* plum etc. can be grown till these do
not interfere with the main mango crop .It is advisable to take vegetable
crops as inter crops for better returns.
+he average cost of inter cropping would be ;s.3&*&&& H Acre and it would
yield on an average of 4 tonnes H Acres.

;.11.1 Reguation o* Bearing

,roper cultural practices like addition of fertili.ers and control of diseases
and insect pests may be adopted to regulate growth and bearing. ;egular
bearing varieties vi.. ?ashehari and Amrapalli may be grown. ?eblossoming
of the panicles with /AA K 0&& ppm. (0& g.H3&& l. water) during Con$ year
may help to regulate the bearing.
;.11.2 Reguation o* 4ruit Dro#
"mbryo abortion* climatic factors * disturbed water relation* lack of
nutrition* attack of disease and pest* hormonal imbalances are the ma)or
factors that lead to fruit drop. A spray of Alar (-5/ine) K 3&& ppm. or 0&
ppm. 0*J5? (0g. in 3&& l. water) in the last week of April or in the last week
of May will control to some e#tent the summer fruit drop in Langra E

Insect pests mostly observed are mealy bug* hopper* inflorescence midge*
fruit fly and scale insects. For controlling these insects* spraying with
carbaryl* monocrotophos* phosphamidon E methyl parathion are
;.11.2 Di%ea%e% and Di%order%
+he crop is suspect to diseases like powdery mildew* anthracnose* die back*
blight* red rust* sooty mould* etc. In order to control these diseases spraying
of appropriate chemicalsHfungicides have to be undertaken preferably on
preventive basis.
?isorders can also affect the crop if proper case and control measures are not
taken. +he ma)or among these are malformation* biennial bearing* fruit
drop* black tip* clustering etc. +he grower needs to seek advice and
professional assistance to preventHcontrol diseases and disorders in the crop.

;.12 7ar?e%ting and 9ied

+he orchard starts bearing from si#th year onwards and the economic life of
a mango tree e#ceeds B% years.
Lield of fruits varies considerably according to the variety* climatic
conditions* plant population etc. (n an average* the yield ranges from % to D
tHacre. 6rafted plants start bearing early.

2.1 Grading

6rading is mainly based on the si.e* colour and maturity of the fruits. 1hile
grading* smaller fruits are separated from the larger ones in order to achieve
uniform ripening. Immature* overripe* damaged and diseased fruits are
discarded in the process of grading.
+he fruits are generally harvested early in the season at a pre5mature stage to
capture early market. !uch fruits are ripened by uniformly dipping in 2%&
ppm. ethrel (3.=ml.Hl.) in hot water at %0M0
for % minutes. within J5= days
under ambient conditions. Mature fruits are ripened with lower doses of
ethrel for uniform colour development.
2.2 5torage
+he mature green fruits can be stored at room temperature for about J53&
days depending upon the variety. +he harvested fruits are pre5cooled to 3&5
and then stored at an appropriate temperature. +he fruits of ?ashehari*
Mallika and Amrapalli should be stored at 30
* Langra at 3J
hausa at =
with =%5D& ' relative humidity.
2.3 Pac$ing
1ooden or cardboard bo#es* rectangular in shape and bamboo baskets
having capacity to accommodate % to =kg. of fruit is used for packaging and
transportation of mango fruits. +he most commonly used containers are
ventilated card board bo#es of corrugated fibre board (F-) cartons. !i.e of
the bo# varies to accommodate % to 3& kg. of fruit.
2.( Tran%#ortation

;oad transport by trucks is the most popular mode of transport due to easy
approach from orchards to the market.
2.; )ar$eting
Marketing of the produce is mainly controlled by intermediaries like
