This booklet has been compiled to serve as a guide for the establishment of contemporary “small tree” mango orchards. Many state-of-the-art high-density orchards, in which the methods described in the text have been adopted, already exist in Egypt and South Africa.
Attention is given to fertilizing, diseases and certain pests, as well as to other commonly encountered problems. The emphasis of this booklet is on easy comprehension, facilitated by the inclusion of many self-explanatory photographs.
When adopting the high-density growing method, some adaptations may be necessary, which relate to the mango cultivar grown and the climate of the region. Assessment thereof will require the input of a specialist.
