Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on effect of different age of rootstocks on success of softwood grafting in tamarind. Higher percentage of graft success (70.39%), grafts survivability (70.95%), sprouting per cent (14.40%), minimum days taken for sprouting (12.52) and number of sprouts (7.23) were noticed in T7 (6 month old rootstocks). The maximum graft height (37.31 cm), graft diameter (7.92 mm), length of sprouts (19.02 cm) and number of leaves (41.35) were noticed in T7. Study revealed that, softwood grafting in April and May on 6 month old rootstocks might be followed for multiplication of elite tamarind trees with high graft success.
