  • An important approach for improving productivity; high economic returns per unit area
  • System permits maximum utilization of land, water, nutrients and solar energy
  • Conventionally, mango is planted at 10 x 10m (100 trees/hectare); high density planting (HDP) can accommodate 400 trees per hectare (5 x 5m)
  • Canopy management involving training and pruning are essential aspects right from orchard establishment ; these need to continue through out the life of orchard
  • With integration of fertigation technology, productivity as high as 14-15 tons could be achieved as against 7-8 tonnes under  conventional system
  • Fruit drop is minimum (4.2 %) under HDP
  • Pests and diseases management is crucial
