Abstract:

India is second largest producer of fruits in the world after china. India is rich in fruit diversity starting from tropical, subtropical to temperate region. Some of the fruits like Guava, pomegranate, lemon, mandarin etc., if left without any treatment, give several light harvests of the variable quantities and qualities from the various flowering flushes throughout the year. There are three distinct flowering season i.e. February-March (AmbeBahar), June-July (MrigBahar) and October-November (HasthBahar) with the corresponding harvest period during rainy, winter and spring season, respectively. A good quality production can be ensured by regulating the crop in such a way that they could produce only one crop instead of two or three in a year. Plants are forced to produce only one crop instead of two or three crops with good quality production. The main objective of crop regulation is to force the tree for rest and produce profuse blossom and fruits during any one of the two or three flushes. It can be achieved through with holing irrigation water, root exposure, root and shoot pruning, deblossming, spray of chemical and other plant growth regulators. The selection of bahar at a location is mainly determined by prevailing production constraints like availability of the irrigation water, quality production, and occurrence and extend of the damage by the disease and pests and several market factors. Crop regulation planning is about identifying, selecting, implementing and monitoring methods to control the yield and quality of horticultural crops. To be sustainable, this must be achieved without negatively impacting people, the environment or the financial bottom line.
