The regular spraying of fertilizers on the mango tree has a big effect on its fruit bearing,

especially the application of fertilizer with potassium, nitrogen and calcium. It is on these three

depends much so as to flower and bear good fruits. The more fertilizers, the more fruits there

will be.


This was found out in four and a half (4 1/2) years of research at PCARRD on the mango’s
