From orchard to table: Understanding climate change impacts on mango production in India: A review

Author(s): Rajdip Halder, Suraj Varma, Manisha Singh and Ankit Dahiya
Abstract: Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is a renowned horticultural cash crop prized globally for its taste, aroma, and nutritional benefits. However, climate change poses significant challenges to mango production. This review synthesizes the impacts of climate variability on mango growth, fruit development, and phenology, drawing on scientific literature. Fluctuations in temperature, rainfall patterns, and extreme weather events influence mango cultivation, affecting flowering, fruit set, and quality. Climate-induced changes disrupt traditional phenological patterns, impacting pollination, fruit development, and harvest. Elevated temperatures lead to premature flowering, irregular fruit set, and post-harvest quality degradation. Additionally, rainfall variability affects pollinator activity and fruit set. Understanding mango phenology under changing climate conditions is crucial for sustainable cultivation. Studies suggest that mango trees exhibit plasticity, offering resilience against adverse conditions. Nevertheless, adaptation strategies are essential for mitigating climate impacts on mango production. Future research should focus on cultivar-specific responses and adaptation measures to ensure the resilience of mango cultivation in the face of climate change.
