Establishment of Mango gene bank

Establishment of mango gene bank: A mango gene bank has been jointly established by CHES, Bhubaneswar and Directorate of Horticulture, Government of Odisha at the State Horticulture Farm, Dhenkanal. The ex situ establishment of gene bank is first of its kind in which State Department and ICAR jointly perceived the need of conservation of germplasm for their better exploitation. In the first phase, 27 germplasm and 42 varieties of mango have been deposited by the Station.

Establishment of a colour mango block and custard apple block: A block of colour mango of 12 varieties/clone (Pusa Surya, Pusa Arunima, Pusa Pratibha, Pusa Peetambar, Pusa Shrestha, Arunika, Ambika, H-949, H-1084, H- 1739, Arka Neelachal Kesari, Hamilton Sundari) have been established at CHES, Bhubaneswar.

Corelation analysis:

In order to establish correlation between cluster bearing and polyembryony, hermaphrodite to male flower ratio in panicles were recorded in mono and polyembryonic varieties of mango at three different agro climatic zones such as IIHR, Bengaluru, NBPGR, Thrissur and CIARI, Port Blair.
