Study on the effect of height of rootstock and length of scion stick on success of epicotyl grafting in mango (Mangifera indica L.) cv. kesar
Author(s): Nalage NA and Padhiar BV
Abstract: The investigation was carried out with twelve treatments comprising four heights (4, 6, 8 and 10 cm) of rootstocks and three lengths (10, 15 and 20 cm) of scion sticks. The maximum number of sprouted grafts, maximum sprouting percentage, minimum days for leaf emergence, maximum number of leaves per graft, girth (above the union), minimum mortality (%) and maximum survival (%) of grafts were recorded when grafts were made on 6 cm height of rootstock and 10 cm long of scion stick. Consequently, the maximum growth in terms of height and girth (below the union) were recorded in grafts made on 10 cm height of rootstock and 20 cm long scion stick of mango cv. Kesar.
