DIAS, Nilma Oliveira et al. Incidence and severity of mango flower malformation in six cultivars. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2003, vol.25, n.1, pp. 179-180. ISSN 0100-2945. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452003000100049.
The present work was developed with the objective to evaluate the incidence and the severity of mango flower malformation in different cultivars, in conditions of semi-arid region, in Santa Maria da Vitória, Bahia State, Brazil. The experiment was carried out in july, 2001, in a mango orchard composed of different cultivars. The used treatments cultivars were: T1- Rosa; T2- Haden; T3 Bourbon; T4- Palmer; T5- Tommy Atkins; T6- Van Dyke. In the conditions that this work was carried out, the highest percentage of incidence and severity of flower malformation was gotten by Haden variety. Rosa and Bourbon cultivars presented minimum occurrence of the disease.
