‘Nam Dok Mai’ mango for exporting plays a big part of margin, increased in fruit market of Thailand. Many researches on improvement of the quality have been published both tested in pre-harvest and post-harvest. The aim of this study was to compare supply chains of mangoes starting form orchards through export according to postharvest physical quality by surveying different grower’s practices. In the beginning, three different orchards in Phetchabun province were chosen with focusing on the differences in bagging days and pesticization. The results showed that bagging duration affected the color change on the mango skin during fruit development but postharvest diseases. On the other hand, duration of pesticide spraying before bagging showed that 1-2 days spraying before bagging revealed higher fruit diseases compared to bagging immediately after spraying.
