Bagging in different fruit crops is beneficial because it improves appearance of fruit along with quality. A trial was conducted on 15 year young mango (cv. Mallika) orchard grown on degraded lands during 2014-015. The three different types of paper bags (Plastic bag, Blue paper, News paper) with control (Without bagging) were used for bagging of fruits after fruit formation (pre-harvest bagging) each with 100 no. of fruits for assessing incidence of insect, disease, fruit cracking and fruit blackening. Blue paper bagged fruits were recorded maximum improvement in fruit appearance like least insect-pest and disease attack in the fruit over un bagged fruits in Malika mango. Similarly, minimum fruit cracking and blackening was recorded in bagged treatment over unbagged treatment. Hence, fruit bagging in mango with blue paper bag is recommended for commercial use to the growers to escape attack of insect- pests and diseases, fruit cracking, and blackening.
