Abstract:

Trees of Shan-i-Punjab peach were planted at two spacings viz., 5m x 2m and 5m x 3m and were trained to four training systems viz., Y shaped, Hedge row, Espalier and V trellis. Maximum mean flower bud density (13.95) was recorded in V trellis trained trees and minimum mean flower bud density was recorded in Hedge row trees. Fruiting characters including fruit set, fruit retention, fruiting pattern was maximum in Espailer trained trees and minimum in Hedge row trees. Maximum fruit drop was found in Hedge row trees and minimum in Espailer trees. Trees planted at 5m X 3m gave higher Flower bud density, Fruit set, Fruit retention, Fruit drop as compared to 5m X 2m planted trees. It was also observed that in upper canopy part maximum flower bud density, Fruit set, Fruit retention and fruiting pattern was observed whereas in lower canopy part there was maximum fruit drop.
