Girdling, when practiced along with a well-planned pruning program, can help farmers achieve higher yields and ensure better fruit set. By strategically removing a narrow strip of bark around the circumference of the trunk, girdling can cause an increase in carbohydrates that promotes flower bud formation, leading to an improved quality of fruits. However, girdling should be done carefully to prevent hurting the tree, and its application must be tailored to different tree species, varieties and environmental conditions to achieve desired outcomes.
