ABSTRACT

Crop regulation planning is about identifying, selecting, implementing and monitoring methods to control the quality and yield of crop. If plants left to nature they may bloom and fruit unevenly through-out the year but quality and yield is not so good in all crop harvest. In order to overcome this problem and to force a full crop in any of the three seasons, as required by the grower and the traders, bahar treatment is practiced in fruit orchards. Understanding of crop regulation will help to optimize harvest time which reduce surplus in the market, to obtain higher price of the produce, to avoid spoilage due to excessive production at a particular time, to provide employment throughout the year and balance the trade and to reduce imports. Compared to summer crop, winter crop is much superior in quality and fetch premium price. In addition, it will also help in pest and disease control by avoiding exposure of plant susceptible stage with respect to particular pest/disease cycle. The purpose of this discussion is to review basic knowledge available on the regulation of flowering and the way as these processes can be manipulated to the advantage of the grower.
