STUDIES FOR THE STANDARDIZATION OF STONE GRAFTING IN SIX MANGO CULTIVARS UNDER LUCKNOW CONDITIONS OF INDIA
Mango (Mangifera indica L.) is the most popular fruit of India and few countries in the world are endowed with cultivars of such excellent quality being of socio-economic significance. Keeping in view the importance of mango, an investigation was carried out during 2005-2006 at the Horticultural Research Farm of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Lucknow. The experiment comprised of six mango cultivars viz., Amrapali, Dashehari, Langra, Lucknow Safeda, Mallika and Chausa in a randomized block design with five replications to study the success of stone grafting in these cultivars under Lucknow conditions of Uttar Pradesh, India. Overall performance of stone grafting operation was observed in terms of success of grafting (%), diameter of rootstock and scion (cm), sprout length of graft (cm), height of graft (cm) and number of leaves after 30 and 90 days after grafting; leaf length (cm) and leaf width (cm) after 90 days of grafting of these six cultivars. Results clearly revealed that the highest success percent and overall performance of stone grafting operations was recorded by using scion-stick of cultivar Amrapali, whereas minimum success percent was in cultivar Lucknow Safeda under Lucknow conditions.
