Effect of grafting height and scion length on growth of Citrus reticulata cv. Nagpur Mandarin grafts
Author(s): Amrita Thokchom and RK Dilip Singh
Abstract: The effects of grafting height (10 cm, 15 cm and 20 cm) and scion length (5 cm, 10 cm and 15 cm) on the growth performance of citrus cultivar Nagpur Mandarin as scion and Rough Lemon as rootstock were studied. The studies were carried out at the experimental field of Horticultural Research Farm, Andro, College of Agriculture, Central Agricultural University, Imphal during 1st April 2014 to 30th March 2015, with a view to find out the best grafting heights and scion length and their reciprocal influence of the rootstock and scion on each other. Plant height (56.18 cm), scion shoot length (39.72 cm), number of leaves (58.56),diameter above 2.5 cm of the graft union (0.90 cm), diameter below 2.5 cm of the graft union (1.05 cm) and girth (0.99 cm) were observed maximum when 15 cm scion length were grafted at 15 cm height. Maximum success percentage (96.67 %) was observed when 10 cm scion length was grafted at 15 cm height.
