Abstract:

Food and nutritional security are emerging as the greatest challenge of the 21st century. The pace at which population is growing it is estimated that the food demand will be doubled by 2050.  The need of hour is sustainable secure and affordable way to feed the entire population with nutritious food.  Hence it is essential to incorporate high tech practices in our day to day cultivation practices to increase both quantity as well as quality of the produce. Even though, India ranks first in production of mango, it is far behind in terms of productivity.  There is a great scope for increasing the productivity. In this review we have discussed a few important hi – tech practices in the fruit crop mango. The novel techniques that cab be adopted to improve the mango productivity are High Density Planting, fertigation technology under UHDP, mulching, canopy management, using of growth regulators, floral manipulation by  application of exogenous plant hormones,  induction  of off  – season flowering,  ethylene spray, paclobutrazol and  top working of old and senile orchards for rejuvenation. When all these techniques are integrated and practiced, there will be remarkable increase in productivity of mango.
