Ripe jackfruit is naturally sweet with subtle flavouring.The fruit of the jack (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is one of the popular fruits in India. cakes.TITLE:- Project preparation for establishment of commercial orchard of jackfruit with special reference to Jharkhand. then the whole fruit can be chopped into edible portions and cooked to be eaten.72 million hectares 3.04 million tonnes of fruits from an area of 3. It spread early on to other parts of India. the East Indies and ultimately the Philippines. with a production of 44.India is the second largest producer of Fruits after China. sweet taste. INTRODUCTION:. where the total area under this fruit is about 13.460 ha. The skin of unripe jack fruit must be peeled first and discarded. BACKGROUND:1. Economic Importance:. including custards.The jackfruit is believed indigenous to the rain forests of the Western Ghats of India. 2. Seeds from ripe fruits are edible and are prepared by boiling in salted water for about 25 minutes. AREA & PRODUCTION:. . The raw young fruit is not edible. It is often planted in central and eastern Africa and is fairly popular in Brazil and Surinam. southeast Asia. They have a milky. roasted salted seed is also eaten and considered a delicacy. It can be used to make a variety of dishes. In many parts of India. ORIGIN:.

VI. 2. 'Singapore'. decreasing in abundance up to 1000m above sea level. 'Bhadaiyan' and 'Handia' . it thrives best in moist tropical environments below 1000 m (3300 ft). Fieldsown seedlings can be top-worked (grafted) with select varieties once they are established. 3. If the roots touch stagnant water. It is most common in lowland forests upto 250 m (820 ft). especially for commercial production where a uniform product with the best market qualities is important. Seedlings develop very quickly. Agro-climatic requirements:= Jackfruit grows in a wide range of tropical to subtropical environments. It favors environments with a uniform rainfall pattern. direct-seeding in the field can give the best results. and rocky substrates. the tree fails to bear fruit. V. Varieties Cultivated:= I. so grafting known varieties onto rootstocks is often done. reaching 25 cm (10 in) in height within 3–4 months. deep soils of moderate fertility but tolerates a wide range of soils including shallow limestone. although uncommon. Seeds are cross-pollinated and therefore not true-to-type. 'Bhusila'. II. The tree does not tolerate water stagnation or poor drainage.PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY: 1. IV. Propagation by vegetative means such as cuttings and air-layering is also possible. sand. Because the seeds are large and grow quickly and their root systems are sensitive to damage during transplanting. or 'Ceylon' 'Safeda'. or it may die. 'Khaja'. III. Propagation:= Jackfruit seedlings are very easy to grow. Soils requirement:= Jackfruit grows best in well drained. 4.

For obtaining higher productivity Recommended fertilizer schedule for jackfruit Age of the plant (in years) Nitrogen Phosphate Potash 1-3 4-7 7 & above 200 120 60 400 240 120 600 300 180 Irrigation:= The frequency and amount of irrigation to be provided depends on the type of soil. x 10m. Training of Plants:= Training 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. Planting:= The plants of jackfruit should be planted in a square system (hexagonal if the soil is less fertile) 12m apart. Apply 80kg farmyard manure to a tree annually along with chemical fertilizers. In case of heavy rainfall zones. x 8m. The plants should be trained by removing lower branches. June-August is ideal time for planting. and 12m. Planting Season:= Planting is usually done in the month of July-August in rainfed areas and during February-March in irrigated areas. . The tap root system along with plants should not be disturbed while planting. Protective irrigations are necessary initially at 12-15 days intervals depending on soil and climate conditions. The young plants should be protected from stray goats and cattle.5. a spacing of 8m. planting is taken up at the end of rainy season. with a population of 63 plants per acre has been considered which was observed to be common in areas covered during a field study. Nutrition:= Its plants need adequate nutrition for regular and good cropping. Spacing:= The planting distance is 10m. x 12m. In the model scheme.

Gray blight. Nipaecoccus viridis. In addition to field crops. Diseases of importance include Pink disease. Age of the plant (in years) /Growth stage Irrigation schedule Irrigated at an interval of 2-3 days during dry season. Ochyromera artocarpio. Collar rot. Mealybugs. some short duration . Jack scale. can be cultivated in fully grown orchards. Plant Protection Measures:= PEST & DISEASES:= Principal insect pests in India are the : Shoot-borer caterpillar. Pestalotia elasticola. peach. The average cost of inter cropping would be Rs.000 / Acre and it would yield on an average of 6 tonnes / Acres. Margaronia caecalis. less exhaustive and dwarf type inter. guava.

Irrigated after every 10-15 days 2-3 irrigations after fruit set. turmeric etc. No irrigation is required during the monsoon months unless there are long spells of drought. ginger. can be grown till these do not interfere with the main mango crop . Rhizopus artocarpi. Charcoal rot. Irrigation interval. Diaphania caesalis.It is advisable to take vegetable crops as inter crops for better returns.rainfall and its distribution and lastly the age of the trees.4-5 days .

a tree bears a few to 250 fruits annually at this stage.maturity at harvest are important factors on which the storage life depends. Transportation:= Road transport by trucks is the most popular mode of transport due to easy approach from orchards to the market. r Individual jackfruit may weigh up to 50 kg. A storage life of about 6 weeks is expected when tile temperature is 10. The initial quality and stage of .7°C and humidity between 85 to 90 per cent. .1 to l2. POST HARVEST MANAGEMENT:= Storage := Jackfruit is not normally stored in cold storage. It has a good storage quality because of its thick peel. Harvesting is done by cutting off the stalks carrying the fruits. it can be transported to distant places for marketing. Normally. The weight of tile fruit varies widely depending on tile type. Period of fruit development is February to June. The fruit matures towards the end of summer in June. It does not need any packing or wrapping before sending to markets. Bearing in jackfruit starts from tile seventh to eighth year when a few fruits may develop. MARKETING:= Marketing of the produce is mainly controlled by intermediaries like wholesalers and commission agents.Harvesting and Yield:= Fruits mature 3 to 8 months from flowering. Yield is not similar every year. The tree reaches its peak bearing stage within fifteen to sixteen years after planting. Because of its good storage quality. Tender jackfruits are harvested for use as vegetables during early spring and summer until tile seeds harden.
