POLY-EMBRYONIC ROOTSTOCKS FOR MANGO
The observational trial consisted of Baneshan and Neelum trees grown on the following poly-embryonic rootstocks.
|Scion||Rootstock||No. of trees|
From the yearwise yield data the cumulative yields both in number and weight were calculated for assessing the relative performance. To study the uniformity in bearing of Neelum trees, eleven normal cropping years were chosen and the coefficient of variation in tree yield calculated.
The data on tree growth, yield and fruit quality are presented in table 1. The trees of Neelum grown in poly-embryonic rootstocks recorded greater measurements in height, spread and volume than those on monoebryonic
