Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Department of Horticulture (Fruit and Fruit Tech.), Bihar Agricultural College under Bihar Agricultural University during the year 2017-18 to show the floral biology and pollen viability of some cultivars of mango. The results indicate that the duration of panicle initiation was highest (45 days) in Langra In respect of panicle length maximum (38.4 cm) was recorded in Zardalu. Highest flowering period was found in Hussan-e-ara (27 days). Highest per cent of anthesis occurred during 6.00 AM to 10.00 AM in all cultivars. Data regarding to number of flowers per panicle were maximum in Langra (1003). In respect of number of male flowers it was found significantly maximum in Langra (705). Number of hermaphrodite flowers was also maximum (298) in Langra. Sex ratio is an important parameter for determination of fruiting behaviour and ultimately yield. Highest sex ratio (2.7) was recorded in Gulabkhas and Hussan-e-ara. For hybridization programme pollen viability as well as pollen germination per cent is important parameters. Highest pollen viability per cent (90.6 %) was observed in Hussan-e-ara.
