Growth and Yield Response of Phalsa (Grewia asiatica L.) to Various Pruning Intensities and Dates

Hafiz Sabir Ali, Abdul Ghaffoor, Kashif Waseem and Mohammad Amjad Nadeem

Abstract

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).
