PERFORMANCE OF MANGO VARIETIES IN THE MARGINAL LANDS, JALGAON
Jain Group of Industries has established a banana and mango processing plant of 140 t/day capacity, which is Kosher Certified. The Group has undertaken large scale planting of mango in its captive Research and Development farm. For this purpose large chunk of area of hilly terrain and plataeu hitherto lying waste has been acquired. The farm in its different sites has varied soil types which are mostly marginal soils. Encouraged by the initial success of some of the mango cultivars planted early in the farm, the area under mangoes has since been increased to about 130 ha with about 60,000 mango grafts of varieties such as Alphonso, Baneshan, Dashehari, Kesar, Mallika, Ratna, Totapuri etc. The limiting factors as obtained on specific sites were made good by adopting improved production technology. The present paper deals with the improved techniques adopted for raising mango plantations and performance of mango cultivars on these marginal soils.
