Field preparation began by hiring a bulldozer to clear the field of brush and grass. This mango is polyembrionic, meaning one seed will produce between one and ten seedlings. Mango trees grow and produce well on various soil types but a sandy loam or loam (with a clay content of 15 to 25%) is ideal. Pruning in the second year was a lot more intensive, taking 1 to 3 minutes per tree or 6 to 8 hours for the entire field, 4 to 6 times per year. A fact sheet was distributed at this event. Tree spacing will determine how many trees will be needed. The ultra high density plantation (UHDP) method has been in use for around a decade. A mini excavator was used to dig the holes at 2′ x 2′ width and depth. After planting, mangoes develop a strong taproot that can extend to 6 m deep. This will go a long way in producing a comprehensive report of the ultra high density plantation and the open Tatura trellis systems. Year one began by starting 600 seedlings of “common” mango. Where it was first developed is hard to pinpoint, but India, Australia, Israel, South Africa, and China are a few of the countries that utilize this method for mango production. Mango farmers of south Gujarat have started adopting new agricultural technology to cultivate high density mango orchards in the region. Fruit is borne on the ends of branches, so spacing too closely may severely limit fruit production in mature trees d… But, this number differs in ultra-high density mango tree plantation where the distance between mango … Making a template to follow when auguring the holes is essential to getting the right angle when setting the posts. In UHDP mango plantation, the no. This project was focused on mangoes, but here in Hawaii we can grow all tropical fruits and these two systems have increased the production with other fruits. (2009). The trees are nearly the desired size and pruning takes three to four minutes per tree, now it takes nearly six hours to prune the whole field. This was another great opportunity to meet farmers throughout the state, where I was able to display a poster of the project and talk about the things I’ve been doing. It is pretty clear that this generation of consumers do not like chemicals sprayed on their fruits and vegetables. Nearly 700 trees are planted in an acre instead of the traditional process of planting 60 trees in an acre. Year two, the main focus was developing the canopy of the tree by constantly pruning and tipping, this encourages branching and spreading out. This project evaluates the costs of installation per acre, the expected return on investment, potential increase of production, labor demands, and orchard maintenance. Boards were used to make the holes smaller and to make the concrete block a trapezoid shape, reciprocating saws are great for cutting chain, a template to follow when digging holes and setting posts. One tour was with a local high school’s agriculture program and one group was a mix of people from USDA and NRCS. Planting densities over 300 trees per acre is considered ultra high density. Bombay Green (Malda) This is one of the earliest varieties of North India, harvested by the end of June. Pruning and training the trees on the trellis in the first year requires three to five minutes per tree, or about two hours per row, 10 hours for the entire field. The Ultra-High Density Plantation technique requires mango grafts of commercial varieties to be planted close to each other. In the case of the trellises, it provides the framework to then cover the entire orchard with bee netting, which will keep out fruit flies as well as birds, and it is the netting that will ultimately do the most to increase production. Report. At this point, the terminal bud is removed, which will force multiple buds to flush, thickening the canopy. Enter the password that accompanies your e-mail or user number. Tropical fruits is in high demand and Hawaii’s farmers are trying to meet the need. The idea behind the increased density and the short trees is to lessen the demand on labor, while maximizing the use of available land and resources. Orchard maintenance is difficult and labor intensive. Year two. This site is maintained by SARE Outreach for the SARE program and features research projects supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture. There are many different ways to train trees along a trellis. A total of 10 acres was planted using this innovative cultivation technique promoted by Jain irrigation. Alongside these insects are the birds that can decimate an entire orchard. Ultra high density field. The first wire on the trellis is 24 inches from the ground. The otts field has been the opposite, establishing the trees along the wire is a lot more time consuming in its’ first year. if the branch is to horizontal it will bend down to the ground when set with fruit or it will not be able to support the weight and break. Pruning is required every two months and it is important to keep up with each flush of new leaves and growth. Maintaining the ground cover and weeds is time consuming. Each row of trellis is 260 feet long from anchor to anchor. A REVIEW OF THE EXPERIMENTAL WORK FROM 2001 TO 2005, 820_71 EFFICACY OF ACTARA 240SC (THIAMETHOXAM), APPLIED AS A DRENCH AGAINST MANGO SEED WEEVIL (STERNOCHETUS MANGIFERAE) ON MANGOES IN SOUTH AFRICA, 820_72 BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF THE MANGO SCALE AULACASPIS TUBERCULARIS NEWSTEAD (COCCIDAE: DIASPIDIDAE) BY A PARASITOID APHYTIS CHIONASPIS REN (HYMENOPTERA: APHELINIDAE), 820_73 MANGO RESISTANCE TO FRUIT FLIES. These techniques allow for better management of the orchard and more efficient use of inputs. Eight grafts were planted in normal density and 216 grafts were planted in high density employing about 0.162 ha area for each density. The uhdp field, in the first two years of pruning and training has been fast and easy. Because these two orchard management systems are relatively new, there is very little data on production. Another reason I prefer the uhdp method is that the low trees and straight rows make this system compatible with mechanical pruning, which will allow one person to manage even more acres. The materials for the trellis cost about $13,000 per acre, which can be very cost prohibitive, especially when considering planting 10 acres or more. Mango can be grown in a wide range of soils except clayey or extremely sandy or rocky calcareous, alkaline or water logged soils. next, the field was laid out with ten rows and thirty trees per row at an 8′ x 10′ spacing, each row is 250′ long. Pruning, while labor intensive, require nothing more than clippers and a hand saw. Each hole was dug 36 inches deep by 20 inches long by 8 inches wide. responsibility over the next year is to train and prune the trees to get the desired shape. The collapse of the sugar plantation left a huge gap in agriculture and up until this time has yet to recover. Did this project contribute to a larger project? The open Tatura trellis system is demonstrated on a 1/2 acre of land by planting 300 mango trees on five rows of trellis. The open tatura trellis system is a “V” style trellis with a 20 inch “open” gap between posts, this is an adaptation from the original design, and it allows the farmer to walk in between the rows.

Acta Hortic. UHDP is very similar to the standard mango orchard except that ten times the amount of trees are planted in the same area. The anchors should be set an equal distance away from the post as it is tall, so my posts are 8 feet tall and the anchors are set 8 feet away from the post.There are many different designs for ground anchors, from large screw shaped rods that are drilled in the ground or a flat steel plate attached to a rod and buried three feet deep. Trees are staked up as needed and flowers are removed so the trees can focus on vegetative growth. All of these things add up to a lower quality fruit, a greater cost of production, and a longer wait for the orchard to begin producing. Its keeping quality is good. Densely packing the fields with trees will allow for a more thorough use of an acre of land, leaving less space available for weeds to grow. If you miss pruning a flush of growth and there is a second flush, you will have to prune back two sections. Improving Hawaii’s mango industry by introducing and comparing two innovative techniques that have increased yields and quality of the fruit while improving on efficiency and management of the orchard. Experimental mango plantations have been established during 1996-97 in about 60 ha area. Follow. Block or high density plantings provide natural protection from wind, but avoid planting trees too close together because they will compete with each other for light, water and nutrients. Harvesting will be conducted by hand reducing the risk of damage and improving the quality of the fruit. Posts were set 24 inches deep, with the tops of the posts being eight feet above the ground. Cultivation practices for mango in ultra high density. The sub-lateral branches are established with each new flush, every 6 to 10 inches, and this is where most of the flowers and subsequent fruit will develop. the Horizontal Cordon or single leader is the preferred technique for training mango trees, A 3 year old tree on Maui where you can clearly see the leader. Increases productivity up to 2-3 times; Reduces water used for irrigation up to 50 %; Increases fertilizer uptake by plants when fertigation is practised. Then, in 2011, Tropical cyclone Yasi, a very large cyclone, hit North Queensland again, but this time, the trees that were on trellises survived. 820_14 evaluation of mango cultivars for productive and commercial plantation under punjab conditions of pakistan ... ultra-high density orchard and recognized benefits associated with small tree mango orchards ... 820_75 monitoring fruit flies in mango orchards in south africa and determining the time of … CV. A state of the art 140 t/day capacity mango processing plant was established in 1997. Grafting tools: scion wood wrapped in Paraffin wax tape, green nursery tape, clippers, utility knife, alcohol spray, rag, Polyembrionic seed with multiple seedlings. The Indian ultra high density mango farming video shows trees that appear to be young. For the third and final year, We have a field day coming up in the spring, by then there should be fruits on the trees and with the trellised field we will continue to go over the demands of pruning and training in the first 3 years of planting. Now, Naidu is hopeful that his 14-acre mango farm at Samireddypalli village, 12 km from Chittoor town in Andhra Pradesh, will yield five tonnes of mango per acre this year. In order to address this legitimate concern, as farmers we have to incorporate new innovative techniques to reduce our reliance on chemicals. The objective of the Mango Loa project is to improve the production and quality of Hawaii’s mango industry by demonstrating and comparing two new innovative orchard management systems for tropical fruits, these are the ultra high density plantation and the open Tatura trellis system. Benefits of Ultra High Density Plantation in mango. Re: Re: Potassium Nitrate to induce mango flowering in Ultra High Density planting « Reply #7 on: October 09, 2012, 09:44:12 PM » Quote from: Tropicdude on October 08, 2012, 07:18:47 PM Suckers appearing below the graft point or out of placed are removed as soon as possible. I am currently scheduled to be a presenter at both events later this year. COGSHALL) ACCORDING TO AGRONOMIC CONDITIONS, 820_88 SAPBURN MANAGEMENT FOR IMPROVING MANGO FRUIT QUALITY, 820_89 METHYLCYCLOPROPENE (1-MCP), A NEW APPROACH FOR EXPORTING 'KENT' MANGOS TO EUROPE AND JAPAN, 820_90 EFFECT OF 1-METHYLCYCLOPROPENE ON THE SHELF LIFE OF MANGO (MANGIFERA INDICA LINN.) Cost of Installation- The most obvious difference between these two techniques is the cost of installation. However, There will always be skeptics to major changes and a lot of farmers are waiting to see what the production is like before they will commit the time and money to change over to a new system. The most useful outreach tool at this point has been Facebook, where I created a group “The Mango Loa Project”, and have been chronicling its’ progress. Planting distance depends on the growth of the cultivar and can range from 12 x 12 m apart to 2.5 x 2.5 m in high-density mango orchards. India’s main export destinations for mango are the USA and other Middle East countries with a limited quantity being shipped to the European market. Two bags of 80 pound Quickcrete was used per hole. Which would explain the size of the trees in the video. The results are discussed in detail. Grafting began after the flowering season, which in Hawaii is about March, and continued from March to September, until there was 350 grafted mango trees. However, both systems report yields of 8 to 12 tons per acre. However, that time and effort is made up when it comes to harvesting the low trees, which is done from the ground and picked by hand. HIGH DENSITY PLANTATION IN MARGINAL SOILS AND PROCESSING OF MANGO. The open tatura trellis system is planted in staggered double rows 20 inches apart. A realistic expectation for mango production is two to five tons per acre, and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report the global average for mango production at 3.5 tons/acre. Fresh mangoes and mango pulp are important items of agro-exports from India. Under the ultra high density method, the mango trees will be planted closer together with lesser space left than in the high density and normal method of cultivation. A paper on the project is being written and we will look to get it published at the University of Hawaii, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) this year. So ultra high density mango cultivation can be more helpful for the farmers. The uhdp field requires stakes for the trees, in the first year or two, and when there are 600 trees per acre, it can get expensive. The scaffold branches will provide the main shape and support for the canopy. It was made in 2012, and the narrator says the idea came from a visit by Indian scientists "five years ago" to a South African farm, where 900 trees were being grown on an acre (!!!). The otts field uses a lot of trellis clips and vinyl tape for training the trees along the trellis, which is another costs that adds up when dealing with 600 trees per acre. suckers forming below graft point need to be removed. Fruits are medium sized with pleasant flavour, sweet and fibrous pulp. The ultra high density plantation (UHDP) method has been in use for around a decade. 2″ x 4″ x 8′ cross pieces were added to the top of the posts for stabilization. Orchard management- An aspect of these two techniques is to lessen the demand on labor, while in India, using the uhdp method, they say that one person can manage up to 10 acres. At this point, it is tying the trees onto the wire that is most time consuming, and by the third year, training will be done, and pruning will be for excessive growth and sub-laterals. These are a couple of concerns that make tropical fruit farming in Hawaii prohibitive. high density mango orchard. The trees are long lived, often over 100 years while still producing fruit. When grafting trees, it becomes essential to have the graft point below 18 inches, preferably lower, or the tree will be too tall to get the branches trained along the first wire. Stand alone UHDP mango fields in India have reported harvests of 8 tons per acre, over double the global average of 3.5 tons per acre. Because of that, the focus is mainly on the cost of production, installation of these two techniques, and the demand on labor to implement these orchard management styles. High Tensile 12 1/2 Gauge 170,000 psi Steel Wire. Playing next.

Pruning and training begins immediately. We had one field day this year, we went over the ultra high density field and the pruning and training requirements necessary over the first full year. These techniques are now being employed in South Africa, India, Thailand, Australia, and South America, as well as the United States with apples and peaches. Generally about 60 mango saplings can be planted in one acre of orchard area. Having taken up the UHDP programme three years ago, Naidu planted over 600 trees in an acre, compared with just 40 trees in the traditional practice, which yielded him just 1.5 tonnes of mangoes an acre. In order to get the most from this project, it will need a second part, the first three years of production. Whereas, the otts training is along the wire, the pattern has already been determined, just have to do the work tying down branches. Year 1. Using ultra high density plantation techniques to improve the production and quality of mangoes in Hawaii. The trees take 0 to 1 minute to prune and the entire 1/2 acre can be completed in two to three hours. Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education. The mango tree is a sub-tropical evergreen tree that is widely dispersed throughout the tropics. Also the low trees will allow for easier protection of the fruit from bird, bug, and critter damage; bagging the fruit or installing bird netting can be better accomplished. Each lateral growing branch has a four feet span to cover. UHDP leads to mango orchards attaining their full potential in 3-4 years. Add to that the 40% reduction in time before production, from 7 to 10 years to 3 years, increases the draw to incorporating these techniques into the orchard.

VAR. B. Krishna, A.N. Under UHDP, Mango is planted at 3×2 m which accommodates 674 plants per acre. This year’s Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers state conference’s main theme was high density and trellising tropical fruits. They visit farms to volunteer and get hands on experience, this year my farm will be one of the participating farms. New shoots are thinned down to three and will become the scaffold branches, The end result of the field planting was 10 rows with 31 trees per row. beginning 3rd year in ground, These trees are 7′ tall with a nice canopy and ready to flower. The Tatura trellis system has been around for about 30 years and was developed at the Tatura research institute in Victoria, Australia, with the goal of improving productivity and sustainability of temperate zoned fruits and through trial and error the trellises were a success and the practice has been accepted worldwide. 820, 447-462, International Society for Horticultural Science, https://doi.org/10.17660/ActaHortic.2009.820.56, Division Tropical and Subtropical Fruit and Nuts, Division Physiology and Plant-Environment Interactions of Horticultural Crops in Field Systems, 820_1 MANGO PRODUCTION IN SOUTH AFRICA AS COMPARED TO THE REST OF THE WORLD, 820_2 STRUCTURE AND PRODUCTIVITY OF SPANISH MANGO INDUSTRY: A FARMERS SURVEY ANALYSIS, 820_3 INNOVATIONS DRIVING SPANISH MANGO ORCHARDS TOWARDS ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY: A TECHNOLOGY-ADOPTION ANALYSIS, 820_4 NEW PRACTICES IN MANGO CULTIVATION IN ECUADOR, 820_6 MARKETING STRATEGIES FOR EXPORTING MANGOES AND MANGO PRODUCTS FROM INDIA, 820_7 THE OFF SEASON USA MANGO MARKET. The spacing grid we followed was 3m x 3m. Current trend where you have sufficient water facility is to go for ultra density mango plantation. I will continue to have farm tours for any interested farmers and continue looking for outreach opportunities. The majority of time is spent maintaining the ground cover and weeding around the trees, walking the field, pruning and training branches. Ultra High Density Plantation in Mango. Some of the work can be started in the nursery. Dept. This will set you back about two months of growing time and if you don’t prune back two sections, the tree will get too tall. the most developed trees in this field are now at this stage. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer. The wire is coiled under tension,so a Spinning Jenny is required to dispense the wire. The one event I attended that was a discussion on the topic showed that a good number of farmers want to incorporate these techniques on their farms, but need to see more examples before they commit to the financial investment of planting orchards using UHDP and open tatura trellis systems. Experimental mango plantations have been established during 1996-97 in about 60 ha area. Pruning in these two systems is more time consuming and labor intensive, over the first three years, than pruning in the standard mango orchard. I believe the difference between these two systems, in the time it takes to prune and train the trees, will be less once the trees reach full size in the field and on the trellis. AgricultureDotPk. You can get dashehari mang… Ghana: Mango farmers using ultra-high density plantation tech Mango farmers have been taken through ultra-high density plantation (UHDP) technology to improve yields … The use of drip irrigation and Fertigation (the use of irrigation to distribute nutrients) allow for a more efficient use of inputs. If left unpruned, trees will grow between 60 and 100 feet tall in 25 years. Here is where it is very important to keep up with every flush of new growth. The first wire was set 24 inches from the ground and 18 inches apart between wires. However, thicker stakes could be gathered from the wild for the second year, and by the third year no stakes were required. There was 28 participants for this field day, with over half being farmers. In essence, its a trade off in the demand on labor between pruning and harvesting. 2019-38640-29881 with the University of Maryland to develop and disseminate information about sustainable agriculture. If there is no established leader, all the other branches will compete to become the leader and this will increase the vigor in the whole tree making it difficult to manage. 5:11. I had a booth at the local Waipa Mango Festival where i displayed posters and talked about the project. The low trees are managed completely from the ground. Dashehari This is the mid season mango variety ripens in first half of July and is most popular in North India. For this project, the ground anchors were made out of concrete and chain.
