An overview on production constraints, strategies and innovative production technologies of fruit crops

Author(s): Abhay Bisen
Abstract: India ranks second in the world fruit production rankings, producing 13% of total fruit production. It is a leading producer of mango, banana, papaya, Sapota, and acid lime. Fruits are essential for human diets and are being researched under ICAR, leading to over 108 million tons of fruit production. The plant improvement programme has developed various fruit crops, including mango, banana, citrus, pineapple, papaya, guava, Sapota, jackfruit, litchi, grape, apple, peach, pear, plum, apricot, almond, walnut, Aonla, Ber, pomegranate, Annona, Phalsa, regular bearing mango hybrids, and export quality grape varieties. Improved propagation techniques have increased production and standardized agro-techniques for large-scale adoption. India has made significant progress in producing lesser-known fruits like Aonla, Ber, bael, Sapota, and pomegranate. The corporate sector is showing interest in fruit crops, and there has been a shift in consumption patterns. Recent fruit production techniques are expensive but profitable for large commercial growers, but most are still in the experimentation stage. Fruit crop management is crucial for producing high-quality fruits, with innovative techniques reducing time and labour requirements, increasing yield, and achieving sustainability goals. This review describes various production methods of fresh fruit. Modern technology related equipment is very expensive but very useful for growers who have a large business. Many of the technologies that benefit the fruit industry are still in the experimental phase. Management of fruit crops is an important factor affecting the time it takes to produce quality fruit for the market. New technologies for different processes in fruit production machines can help growers reduce time and labour, thereby increasing yields by achieving precise targets.
