A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the impact of planting systems on tree canopy volume and fruit yield in mango cv. Dashehari under Lucknow condition. The treatments were comprised of five planting systems viz., square system (100 plants ha-1), hedgerow system (166 plants ha-1), double hedgerow system (222 plants ha-1), cluster system (178 plants ha-1) and paired row system (133 plants ha-1). The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with four replications. The pooled data from the year 2004-05 to 2012-13 indicated that, vegetative growth in terms of tree canopy volume was found higher under hedge row and double hedge row system of planting. Maximum cumulative fruit yield and also mean yield were obtained in double hedge row system of planting (55.72 and 6.19 t ha-1, respectively).
