Abstract:

Vegetables are important constituents of Indian agriculture and nutritional security due to their short duration, high yield, nutritional richness, economic viability and ability to generate on-farm and off-farm employment. Our country is blessed with diverse agro-climates with distinct seasons, making it possible to grow wide array of vegetables. Pruning can encourage faster growth of new shoots, which has the potential to bloom. Training and Pruning technique deserve attention in yield and quality enhancement of vegetable crops. Through its effect on improved photosynthetic efficiency, plant growth, and optimization of vegetative and reproductive balance. A few research works has been conducted on this aspect to improve the growth, yield and quality of vegetable crops. The literature available on pruning in vegetable crops are collected under the following heads (1) Response of pruning on the vegetative growth and yield (2) Response of pruning on quality characters (3) Economic studies.
