Ultra high density field. Maintaining the ground cover and weeds is time consuming. The wire is coiled under tension,so a Spinning Jenny is required to dispense the wire. 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. NAHM-DAWG-MAI, 820_97 CANNED MANGO JUICE PROCESSING FROM MANGIFERA INDICA LINN. For this field, the primary design is the Horizontal Cordon, or the single leader. 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. responsibility over the next year is to train and prune the trees to get the desired shape. In Hawaii, mangoes sell for $1.00/lb to $2.50/lb, depending on the season, making it a reasonable expectation to gross $20,000 per acre. Fruits are medium sized having strong and pleasant flavour. Planting densities over 300 trees per acre is considered ultra high density. The use of drip irrigation and Fertigation (the use of irrigation to distribute nutrients) allow for a more efficient use of inputs. Hawaii is in the process of rebuilding its agricultural industry. 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. of tropical plant and soil science/ University of Hawaii Manoa (Other college or university). The leader is very important to this style. In order to get the most from this project, it will need a second part, the first three years of production. 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. We started our mango planting on Oct 11, 2011 and once again the sun god was cooperative enough to make the process fairly comfortable. High tensile wire is stronger and resists stretching like soft wire and is the preferred wire for trellises. 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. 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. Trees are staked up as needed and flowers are removed so the trees can focus on vegetative growth. I expect there to be more participation at this event because this is the direction that Hawaii’s tropical fruit farmers are heading and Kauai doesn’t have an open tatura demonstration on the island. suckers forming below graft point need to be removed. CV. Open Tatura trellis field. CV. 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. (2009). I began by planting all four sides, then I planted a row in the middle to use as site points to try to line up the trees. Field preparation began by hiring a bulldozer to clear the field of brush and grass. 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. 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. The results are discussed in detail. Sadly, two events scheduled last year were canceled due to the severe flooding on the North side of the island that forced the cancellation of the mango festival and a scheduling conflict interfered with the Kauai farm and garden fair. 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. 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. The soils of the R&D farms are mostly marginal soils hilly terrain with basaltic murum substratum, alkali and saline alkali soils. The standard mango orchard takes seven to ten for the trees to reach maximum production. However, both systems report yields of 8 to 12 tons per acre. My videos have 6,000 views over the last 6 months. Mango farmers of south Gujarat have started adopting new agricultural technology to cultivate high density mango orchards in the region. 1 3/4 inch barbed staples were used to attach the wire to the posts. Fruits are medium sized with pleasant flavour, sweet and fibrous pulp. This is overlaid with three feet wide black weed mat. Each lateral growing branch has a four feet span to cover. The low trees are managed completely from the ground. If we can extend the project for another three years that will show production, we will be able to evaluate the yields and quality of fruit these two systems produce.

A state of the art 140 t/day capacity mango processing plant was established in 1997. A mini excavator was used to dig the holes at 2′ x 2′ width and depth. Reducing labor costs and the need for expensive special equipment, while increasing production through better practices, will go a long way in improving the sustainability of Hawaii’s farmers. 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. Through the group, I have also been able to reach people all over the world. 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. However, the cost for the materials needed to make your own grafted trees come up to around $2.80 per tree and the 18 months process it takes to grow and graft the trees. Fresh mangoes and mango pulp are important items of agro-exports from India. As against the convention of planting 40 to 50 mango saplings in an acre, molecular plant pathologist P. Chowdappa has planted 674 saplings in a acre in … There is a lot of interest for high density planting and at the moment my project is the largest trial in the islands. Irrigation in Mango Farming 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. The soils of the R&D farms are mostly marginal soils – hilly terrain with basaltic ‘murum’ substratum, alkali and saline alkali soils. Copyright © 2020 International Society for Horticultural Science. 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. Six varieties were selected for propagation; four commercial varieties (Rapoza, Nam Doc Mai, Kiett, and Manzanillo) and two local varieties (Haden and Pirie). 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. A series of trials are being carried out to standardize package of practices including evaluation of mango cultivars for yield potential and processing attributes, optimum spacing, irrigation, using drip system, fertigation, crop regulation by pruning, optimum conditions for ripening, organic farming, processing of Alphonso and Totapuri mangoes into puree etc. But, once the tree fills in the space on the trellis, no more trellis clips are required. In 2006, farmers in North Queensland, the tropical area of Australia, began adapting the trellis to tropical fruits to try and protect their orchards from severe storms, after a tropical cyclone had devastated the fruit orchards in the area. 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. I will continue to have farm tours for any interested farmers and continue looking for outreach opportunities. It is pretty clear that this generation of consumers do not like chemicals sprayed on their fruits and vegetables. Using UHDP methods have had great results for guava, jackfruit, and breadfruit, while the open Tatura trellis system has had excellent results in growing durian, sour sop, litchi, starfruit, and abiu; all excellent fruits that have growing markets. NAHM-DAWG-MAI, 820_95 FRESH CUT MANGO FRUITS: EVALUATION OF EDIBLE COATINGS, 820_96 THE PRODUCTION OF CANNED MANGO SLICES IN SYRUP FROM MANGIFERA INDICA LINN. Nearly 700 trees are planted in an acre instead of the traditional process of planting 60 trees in an acre. I attended two conferences; the Hawaii tropical fruit growers conference in Kona, where I displayed my project as well as talked about high density farming; and the Hawaii agriculture conference on Oahu, where I did a Power Point presentation with the topic of “Hawaii’s Fruitful Future” to talk about how we can improve Hawaii’s tropical fruit industry. ... these mango trees is the ultrahigh-density farming method. The otts field has been the opposite, establishing the trees along the wire is a lot more time consuming in its’ first year. Year one  began by starting 600 seedlings of “common” mango. Mango can be grown in a wide range of soils except clayey or extremely sandy or rocky calcareous, alkaline or water logged soils. Pruning and training begins immediately. If left unpruned, trees will grow between 60 and 100 feet tall in 25 years. This project evaluates the costs of installation per acre, the expected return on investment, potential increase of production, labor demands, and orchard maintenance. But this year I am planting Mango orchard using Ultra High Density Mango Plantation (UHDP). Balsubrahmanyam. Alongside these insects are the birds that can decimate an entire orchard. 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. B. Krishna, A.N. Harvesting will be conducted by hand reducing the risk of damage and improving the quality of the fruit. A fact sheet was distributed at this event. A power point presentation is in the works and will be a guide to UHDP techniques and OTTS, a how to presentation that will be made at this year’s annual garden fair and mango Festival. Whereas, the otts training is along the wire, the pattern has already been determined, just have to do the work tying down branches. One tour was with a local high school’s agriculture program and one group was a mix of people from USDA and NRCS. In UHDP mango plantation, the no. 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. The ultra high density plantation (UHDP) method has been in use for around a decade. Ultra High Density Plantation in Mango. However, thicker stakes could be gathered from the wild for the second year, and by the third year no stakes were required. Seven pairs of treated pine posts were used for each row. Acta Hortic. 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. 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. The first year of pruning and training was focused on developing the main trunk and the scaffold branches that provide the main structure and support of the tree. Pruning in these two systems is more time consuming and labor intensive, over the first three years, than pruning in the standard mango orchard. Most of the tours were for individual farmers that were from other islands and visiting Kauai; two farmers from Oahu, one farmer from Maui, and two farmers from Hawaii island. INFLUENCE ON YIELD, FRUIT SIZE AND QUALITY, 820_47 YOUNG FLUSH THINNING IN MANGO (CV.

This year’s planting incorporated all the same components of the stand alone UHDP field, with one added element, the open Tatura trellis system. This year I am opening up my farm to the nonprofit organization GoFarm Hawaii; this group trains aspiring farmers in the classroom and field. I also had two visits to the local high school’s agriculture program, where I did a grafting workshop with the students as well as a discussion on sustainable agriculture and pruning fruit trees for small spaces. We had 8 tours throughout the year. At this point the tree will flush with new growth and this must be thinned to two, three, or four shoots that will be trained to establish the scaffold branches. Pruning is required every two months and it is important to keep up with each flush of new leaves and growth. of plants in one acre is about 500 and the trees bear the fruit in the 3rd year itself due to the continuous grafting and restricting the height of the tree to 6ft. Experimental mango plantations have been established during 1996-97 in about 60 ha area. It is the sub-lateral branches that are pruned back each year to maintain the tree with in its space. Mango trees are vigorous upward growing trees. Ultra High Density Plantation (UHDP) Versus Open Tatura Trellis System (OTTS). The Ultra-High Density Plantation technique requires mango grafts of commercial varieties to be planted close to each other. Did this project contribute to a larger project? The first pruning is at the height of or a couple inches below the first wire. The spacing grid we followed was 3m x 3m. NAHM-DAWG-MAI. The posts are set at a 72 degree angle, which has been determined to be the best angle for optimal light distribution from the bottom of the tree to the top. This brings the height of the tree to five feet. This mango is polyembrionic, meaning one seed will produce between one and ten seedlings. : Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this publication are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the view of the U.S. Department of Agriculture or SARE. But, this number differs in ultra-high density mango tree plantation where the distance between mango … There are many different ways to train trees along a trellis. As the scaffold branches are forming it is important to choose branches that are evenly spaced at a 45 degree angle. So, there is real incentive to raising and grafting your own trees. Increases productivity up to 2-3 times; Reduces water used for irrigation up to 50 %; Increases fertilizer uptake by plants when fertigation is practised. 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 (!!!). Try this to achieve high yield with low land and great quality mangoes with proper pruning every year. I am currently half way through planting the field. Ultra high density plantation (UHDP) methods and the open tatura trellis system (OTTS) is the direction that the world’s tropical fruit farming is heading. 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. The results of some of these trials have shown that mango can be profitably grown under Jalgaon conditions with improved agricultural practices and the puree and concentrate produced by aseptic processing is of world class quality. If you miss pruning a flush of growth and there is a second flush,  you will have to prune back two sections. Tree spacing will determine how many trees will be needed. They visit farms to volunteer and get hands on experience, this year my farm will be one of the participating farms. However the shorter time to production and the higher yields will allow for a quicker and greater return on the investment over the standard orchard system. Mango farmers have been taken through ultra-high density plantation (UHDP) technology to improve yields and the quality of mangoes produced in the country. High Tensile 12 1/2 Gauge 170,000 psi Steel Wire. The trees are long lived, often over 100 years while still producing fruit. Year one pruning was fast and easy, taking 0 to 30 seconds per tree or 2 to 3 hours to prune the entire field. 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. Fruit is borne on the ends of branches, so spacing too closely may severely limit fruit production in mature trees d… 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 Dashehari mango, the average yield in high density … Enter your International Society for Horticultural Science e-mail or user number. There is a good number of Hawaii farmers following along with a lot of interest. Each row of trellis is 260 feet long from anchor to anchor. Since then, Australia has dedicated a lot towards research and trials to improve and adapt the open Tatura trellis system for tropical fruits. 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. When you factor in the costs for the materials needed to build the trellises plus the costs of the UHDP field, it comes to $12,962 per acre, assuming the farmer is making his or her own trees and not purchasing. 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 With the Espalier style a single leader is established that grows up, while a single branch is trained laterally or horizontally along the wire on each side of the leader. One end of the wire was attached directly to the chain on the ground anchor and the other end of the wire was attached to a wire strainer that is attached to the ground anchor and this is to tension the wire once all is set up. 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. The next step was to back fill the holes adding a half pound of 16-16-16 and half pound of neem cake to each hole. Dept. As the branch grows laterally, the terminal bud is removed, when the branch flushes new growth, there will be 2 to 10 new branches, one branch will be selected to be the primary lateral growing branch, while one or two other shoots are left to form the sub-lateral branches,  all other shoots are removed. So ultra high density mango cultivation can be more helpful for the farmers. Five rows have been laid out, each row has 240 feet of trellis to plant on, with two lines of 1/2 inch poly tubing and 2 gallon/hour drip emitters every 8 feet, one emitter per tree. 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. 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 … Through trials done in India and Australia, we know that mango trees thrive under heavy pruning and aside from lessening the demand on labor, there was also an increase in yield and quality of the fruit, increasing production to 8 to 12 tons per acre, while shortening the time to maximum production from 7 to 10 years to three years. beginning 3rd year in ground, These trees are 7′ tall with a nice canopy and ready to flower. Browse more videos. • In mango, –Amrapali at 2.5x 2.5m in triangular system accommodation of 1600and – Dashehari at 3.0 X 2.5 m in square system -1333 plants per hectare, • Increase in yield per hectare was 2.5 times in Amrapali than that of the low density orchards of vigorous cultivar. In essence, its a trade off in the demand on labor between pruning and harvesting. After planting, mangoes develop a strong taproot that can extend to 6 m deep. When the leader reaches the next wire, it is topped, and with the new growth, a new leader is established and again branches are trained to grow laterally on each side of the leader, all other branches are removed.

Ultra high density plantation (UHDP) techniques for mango will be demonstrated by planting 310 trees on a 1/2 acre of land. If you miss the first wire, 20% of the growing space is lost, so this is very important. 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. COGSHALL, 820_26 AN INTEGRATED APPROACH FOR MANGO PRODUCTION AND QUALITY MANAGEMENT, 820_27 STARCH LOCALISATION IN MANGO TREE: HISTOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS, 820_28 THE EFFECT OF GIRDLING ON FLOWERING AND LEAF NET PHOTOSYNTHESIS IN MANGO CV. Grafting tools: scion wood wrapped in Paraffin wax tape, green nursery tape, clippers, utility knife, alcohol spray, rag, Polyembrionic seed with multiple seedlings. The first wire was set 24 inches from the ground and 18 inches apart between wires. India, where these techniques are being developed, report that using these methods enable one farmer to manage as much as 10 acres of mango. When examining the cost for the materials needed to install one acre of mango using ultra high density plantation (UHDP)methods, it comes to $6,084. These techniques allow for better management of the orchard and more efficient use of inputs. CV. 45 feet should be the maximum span between posts. 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. At this stage flowers are removed as soon as possible to keep the tree focused on growing wood and leaves. 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. 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. 5:11.

This is simply because of the number of trees in the high density systems, 600 trees per acre versus 50 trees per acre. 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. 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. the first lateral branches are tied down on the first wire, the leader is on the second wire, trellis clips and vinyl tape are used to attach the branches to the wire, the graft point is too high and the branch cannot be tied to the first wire, leaving the tip of the lateral branch untied and upward facing is important for proper growth. In Australia, farmers have been using this system for about a decade, and have reported mango harvests as high as 20 tons per acre, doubling the production of the stand alone UHDP field. The trees take 0 to 1 minute to prune and the entire 1/2 acre can be completed in two to three hours. Low trees will allow for easier inspection and application of chemicals. The veneer grafted Dashehari plants prepared on seedling rootstock in July 1975 were planted in August, 1976 at two densities: 12m x 12m (69 plants/ha-normal density) and 2.5m x 3.0 (1333 plants/ha-high density). 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. The first goal is to set a single trunk at 3 feet.
