Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is the single most important tropical/subtropical fruit in the World, with World Production standing at 23.195 million MT in 1997. India produces the most mango with annual production of 12 million MT, followed by China (2.142 million MT), Mexico (1.5 million MT), and Thailand (1.35 million MT). In Asia the largest producers are India, China, Thailand and Pakistan (0.91 million MT), while in Oceania, Australia is the largest producer with 30,000 MT (FAOSTAT Database-1997).

The Mango is grown in the tropics and sub-tropics and as a consequence is produced across a large latitude range, under widely varied environments, soils and management conditions. However, this widespread production brings with it a range of special problems or challenges and these are elaborated for the Asia and Pacific region, but many can well be applied to other regions of the World.
