The experiment was conducted in an orchard with 11-year old plants in the first evaluation cycle. Mango Trees were subjected to different concentrations of paclobutrazol and other chemicals with factorial randomised block design. Among the different treatmentsuse of Paclobutrazol and other chemicals was significantly better in getting more number of mango fruits per tree as compared to the control. The  more panicle length (36.24 and 33.83) was noticed with control, more per cent hermaphrodite flowers (3.49% and 3.20%) and less days to full bloom (96 and 100.17) was noticed with the treatment P3 (PBZ @ 4 ml m‾2) followed by P2 (PBZ @ 3 ml m‾2). Maximum number of fruits set per each panicle (17.7 and 15.4) was observed with P3S1 (PBZ @ 4 ml m-2 + Spermidine @ 0.02 mM). More fruit number per plant (212.33 and 208.33), yield (88.53kg,  107.67kg) and maximum fruit weight (625.20g and 588.53g),  were noticed with P3S3 (PBZ @ 4 ml m-2 + NAA@ 25ppm). Therefore the conclusion from these results is that Paclobutrazol and other chemicals are effective in inducing flowering as well as fruiting in Banganpalli mango.
