Abstract:

In Punjab sweet orange and commercial mandarin cultivars are generally grafted or budded on rootstock of rough lemon. This rootstock is highly vulnerable to phytophthora (foot rot) like diseases. Moreover, quality of kinnow plants budded or grafted on an effective rootstock should have good compatibility between both, scion and rootstock besides decent tolerance against predominant edaphic and environmental circumstances. The rootstocks have major effect in tree vigour, quality of the fruit, juice quality, yield including tolerance to salt and cold conditions. The monopolized cultivation of this cultivar scion grafted over rough lemon requires a substituted rootstock for advanced yield/good returns along with lengthier productive life of the tree. Among numerous factors answerable for citrus decline, rootstocks may be considered as major contributor regarding climatic conditions. Nowadays rootstocks associated with this problem in Citriculture industry have presumed a great implication. Every country having citrus cultivation is facing this burning problem. At one time particular rootstock seems very appropriate but may completely fail in future including monoculture may be the basic problem of the all Citrus growing estates. Hence selection of appropriate rootstock for scion cultivar may lead to the success or failure of the citrus plantation. Till now it was reported that Volkamer lemon, Citrumello 4475 along with Brazilian sour orange were the consistent rootstocks for citrus industry of the Punjab. Present review will contribute in selecting appropriate rootstock to overcome dependability of one particular rootstock in citrus industry of Punjab to overcome the future problems.
