The shoot maturation phase is important for growing mangoes because it precedes the floral induction, when plants are under stress caused by high temperatures and low water availability. Abiotic stress could be alleviated by using plant biostimulant which alters the phytohormone and carbohydrates biosynthesis. Thus, an experiment was conducted to evaluate the use a plant biostimulant containing Ascophyllum nodosum to induce shoot maturation of mango cv. Palmer grown in semi-arid environment… Expand

Biostimulant alleviates abiotic stress of mango grown in semiarid environment
ABSTRACT The shoot maturation phase is important for growing mango tree because it precedes the floral induction, when plants are under stress caused by high temperatures and low water availability,Expand
There is a positive effect of the biostimulant containing amino acids and yeast extract on transpiration, internal CO2 concentration, water-use efficiency and number of reproductive and non-differentiated shoots of mango cv. Expand
Effect of carbohydrate content on shoot maturation and yield of Palmer mango submitted to potassium fertilization and biostimulant
It was evaluated whether commercial potassium-based Multipotassio® fertilizer could be used as an alternative source of potassium nutrient in the maturation process of mango branches, and whether Ascophyllum nodosum algae extract MultiTurbo® biostimulant would be good alternative for fruit production.

Impact of fulvic acid and free amino acids on paclobutrazol absorption by ‘Keitt’ mango
This study evaluated the impact of fulvic acid and free amino acids on paclobutrazol soil residue, their absorption and effects on ‘Keitt’ mango grown in tropical semi-arid environmental conditions.Expand


Potassium nitrate and urea sprays affect flowering and yields of ‘Tommy Atkins’ (Mangifera indica) mango in Ethiopia
The supplementation of nitrogen through the spraying of KNO3 and urea is believed to be the reason for the observed greater flowering and yield results of the sprayed relative to the unsprayed trees. Expand
Effect of some chemicals on growth, fruiting, yield and fruit quality of "Succary Abiad" mango cv.
The present investigation was carried out in two successive seasons of 2007 and 2008 on mango cv. "Succary Abiad", at Abou Swear region, Ismailia Governorate, Egypt in a sandy soil and irrigated withExpand
Pruning affects fruit yield and postharvest quality in mango (Mangifera indica L.) cv. Amrapali
Fruit yield of pruned trees was found to decrease during the first year compared with the fruit yield of unpruned trees; later on, it increased during the second year; and both anthracnose and stem-end rot disease percentage were reduced. Expand
The Stem Age Required for Floral Induction of Synchronized Mango Trees in the Tropics
The quantitative floral inductive role of the age of the last vegetative flush was investigated in replicated trials of two cultivars of mango, Keitt and Tommy Atkins, growing in tropical conditions of Cundinamarca State in Colombia, to determine the key factor correlated with flowering. Expand
Influence of season affecting flowering and physiological parameters in mango
A field experiment was conducted at State Horticultural Farm, Kanyakumari District undertaken by the Horticultural College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Periyakulam during the year 2010 to 2012, finding that the environmental variables play a key and vital role in induction of mango flowering.

Marine Bioactive Substances (IPA Extract) Improve Foliar Ion Uptake and Water Stress Tolerance in Potted "Vitis vinifera" Plants.
The effect of marine bioactive substances (IPA extract) on K + and Ca 2+ fluxes and water stress tole- rance was evaluated on potted Vitis vinifera plantlets. Different foliar treatments wereExpand
Boron deficiency disorders in mango (Mangifera indica): field screening, nutrient composition and amelioration by boron application
Foliar application was found to be more effective than soil application in increasing yield and reducing IN and FC disorders and nutrient analysis of leaf and fruit of bearing branches indicated that the IN was caused due to deficiency of boron. Expand
