Author(s): J.S. SHIVRAN, M.L. JAT AND R.K. JAT
Abstract: Pomegranate bears different flowering flushes throughout the year if left without any treatment. It primarily shows three distinct flowering seasons i.e. February-March (AmbeBahar), June-July (MrigBahar) and October-November (Hasta Bahar) with the corresponding harvest period during rainy (June – July), winter (November- December) and spring season (February- March), respectively. Secondly, Three types flowers namely male, hermaphrodite and intermediate are borne on new and old branches in pomegranate for once, two or three times in a year that are influenced bygermplasm, climate and management practicesetc. It gives poor quality and low yield at different times and is not commercially profitable. Good quality and higher yield can be achieved by long-term use of limited cultivation resources at the desired time by crop regulation in pomegranate.In order to escape this, crop regulation in pomegranate is done keeping in mind the availability of irrigation, pest and disease infestation and market prices.
