Various Pruning Intensities and Dates
Hafiz Sabir Ali,
Mohammad Amjad Nadeem
The effect of different pruning intensities as factor-A and various pruning dates as factor-B on the production of phalsa was checked. Pruning levels significantly affected the days taken to sprouting, flowering, fruit setting, number of branches/plant, length of branches, number of fruit clusters/plant and weight of clusters. Among different pruning intensities, 100 cm gave maximum number of clusters/plant (1771) and also the highest yield/plant (18.41 kg). Various pruning dates significantly affected the days taken to sprouting, number of leaves/branch and number of branches/plant. Pruning at 22 Dec. produced maximum number of fruit clusters/plant (1660) and the highest yield/plant (18.17 kg).
