Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at Krishi Vigyan Kendra farm, Veterinary College and Research Institute Campus, Namakkal, Tamil Nadu during 2012 - 2014 to study the influence of Canopy management and chemical manipulation on morphological attributes of off season production in annual moringa cv. PKM 1. The technical programme comprised of two levels of mulching, three pruning levels and three levels of chemical spray (sprayed twice at one and two months after pruning). Among the three different combinations studied, the combination Black polyethylene mulch + July pruning + water spray registered the maximum plant height (3.96 m).Regarding number of branches, the black polyethylene mulch recorded the highest number of primary branches / tree (6.27). In case of pruning treatments, July pruning recorded the highest number of primary branches per tree (5.90). Among the growth retardants, uniconazole 50ppm spray produced more number of primary branches (5.31).
