Abstract

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of high density planting on Amrapali mango trees cultivated in sub-humid warm tropical climate in North-Eastern Indian state of Mizoram. The treatments consisted of three spacing arrangements of plants viz., T1: 2.5x2.5m (1600 plants/ha), T2: 3x2.5m (1333 plants/ ha) and T3: 2.5x1.5m (2666 plants/ha). Plant vegetative, reproductive variables and fruit quality parameters were evaluated at second to fourth years after transplantation in the field. Increasing planting density in Amrapali mango in sub-humid climate until 1600 plants per hectare (2.5x2.5 m) increased plant growth, fruit yield and fruit quality parameters per unit area in comparison to the planting densities with 1333 (3x2.5 m) and 2666 (2.5x1.5 m) plants per hectare.
