The aim of this project was to observe the impact of Biofield treatment in order to eradicate the spongy tissue disorder (internal breakdown). Two groups of 32-year-old Alphonso mango trees having spongy tissue disorder since more than 2 decades were selected at flowering/ fruitening stages. First group of 55 trees were subjected to Biofield treatment, while second group of 75 were control. Standard cultivation practices were followed in control, while treated trees were cultivated only using water. In treated trees flowering pattern (shape and size) altered to 4-5 inches in length with more female flowers whereas it was 8-10 inches long whereas in control there were few female flowers. Neither malformation nor any cluster of fruit lets at tip of panicles was observed in treated compared to control. No fruit drop was observed in treated trees throughout the season compared to control. Fruits from treated trees on 100% maturity were free from spongy tissue and average weight was 400gms compared to 275 grams in control. Acidity and Vitamin C content increased by 66 and 47% respectively; also reducing sugar and total sugar content decreased by 29 and 26% respectively compared to control. According nature’s law, 2-3 months before flowering starts, every tree itself designs the program of flowering period, fruiting period, and final produce in terms of quality and quantity, any treatment given during or after flowering is ineffective due to predetermined program of the tree. After exposure to Biofield treatment all 55 trees completely transformed even after flowering had started. This reprogramming in 55 trees could have been achieved due to DNA polymorphism. This assumption is supported by fact that in a separate project, similar exposure to the said treatment gave rise to DNA polymorphism up to 69% in 38 different crops.
