The aim of canopy management is to develop and maintain a productive fruit-bearing face. An ideal mature mango tree has an open canopy, is small enough to pick easily and has many fruiting terminals.
Maintaining profitability in an environment of ever-increasing costs is a major challenge facing Australian mango growers. A key priority for the Australian mango industry is to increase industry productivity per hectare through increased yields and reduced costs. To achieve these goals, opportunities exist to improve productivity through intensification.

The management of mango tree shoot and flower growth can positively influence fruit yield. It is important to understand the natural processes that support flower development to develop appropriate management practices. Practices must also suit the unique conditions of different production regions and mango varieties.
