Abstract:

Trunk and primary branch girdling was carried out on 17 years old litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) plants of Bombai variety at Horticultural Research Station, Mondouri, BCKV during 2017-2019. to find out the effect of Girdling on the vegetative and reproductive flushing pattern and yield of Bombai Litchi. The experiment was put on RBD consisted of eleven different treatments viz., Girdling (1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 5mm width) was done on primary branches of plants [T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 respectively] and girdling on main trunk with 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 5mm width [T6, T7, T8, T9 and T10 respectively] and an untreated control. All the treatments were replicated three times. Consecutive two years of girdling on the same plant showed a great impact on flowering behaviour and fruit setting percentage as well as boosted the yield.
