Issues for mangoes include True-to-type, postharvest management and the need for value addition to extend market options.

The major constraints to tree production in Pakistan are 1) Variable fruit quality and production due to variation in tree type, 2) Low production due to present management approaches (especially in regards irrigation. canopy management, pest management and fertilization) and 3) Postharvest practices (leading to fruit losses).
