For Flower Induction in Mango
A single application of AGCHEM Mangotone induces early out of season flowering mango trees 7-11 after application. The following conditions must be taken into consideration in order to ensure a successful flower induction. Select only trees that are of bearing age and are ready for smudging. Obvious signs are fully matured, crips, copper green to brownish leaves and the terminal buds are plump but not yet growing. Twigs must necessarily be matured also.
Flower induction through AGCHEM MANGOTONE is more successful if done after the rainy season is almost over. For best results apply towards mid-morning on a sunny day when the temperature is high and when no rain is expected within the next 3-5 hours after spraying.
Use only recommended insecticides to control twig borers and mango hoppers.
Trees forced to flower abundantly tend to use up the necessary nutrients from the soil for fruit development. It is therefore essential to fertilize the soil to prevent reduction of fruiting potential. The fertilizer needs depend upon the soul type, age of trees, and cultural practices. For a simple guide, use 1 kilo of complete fertilizer (12-12-12) (14-14-14) with high nitrogen analysis per year age of the tree per year. For 10 year old tree therefore 10 kilos of fertilizer maybe used. In the absence of exact recommendation, use a mixture of 1 part Urea or 2 parts Ammonium Sulfate and 1 part complete fertilizer. Apply the fertilizer at the start of the rainy season. Apply as ring application with the noon shadow of the tree crown as the circular guide. Prepare 12 holes, 6 inches deep and apportion of the fertilizer of the holes.
