Investigations were undertaken to develop an understanding of the flushing and panicle emergence process in litchi plants under sub-humid subtropical conditions of Eastern India, The intraplant variation in flushing and shoot growth pattern was found to influence the overall floriferousness of the litchi plants. All the shoots with second flush emerging during August and the third flush emerging during November were found to bear panicle in the month of February. A higher shoot girth and larger

Cessation of growth of second flush before the emergence of third flush was found to result in panicle emergence. The carbohydrate content of previous.£eason flush appeared to be contributing towards the emergence of third flush and ultimately the panicle as the content was found to decrease during the third flushing. The phenol content of all the flushes was found to increase during the initiation of new flushes. Observations on changes in content soluble proteins, total free amino acids, proline, phenylalanine, alanine, tryptophane and iso-leucine during different flushings have also been recorded. This record was migrated from the OpenDepot repository service in June, 2017 before shutting down.
