Coloured shade net is an effective tool for sustainable agricultural production. Shade nets of five colours (white, yellow, red, blue and black) in comparison to an open field conditions which were studied in a Keitt mango. The aim of the study was to explore the profitability of different coloured shade net (white, yellow, red, blue, black and control) on the Keitt mango yield during the period of 2016- 2020.
The results showed that white coloured shade net was better to increase the yield per 2000 m2. The average yield of the trees under white coloured shade net was about 7.3 kg/tree compared to about 6.3, 5.8, 5.1, 4.3, 4.3 kg/tree for "yellow, red, blue and black" coloured shade net and control respectively. The black coloured shade net had the lowest economical profit. Thus, growing mango under white coloured shade net is helpful to increase marketable, exportable yield and quality of mangoes compared to other treatments.
