Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Department of Fruit Science, IIHR, Bangalore during the year 2015. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three treatments and replicated seven times. Two years old trees of pomegranate cv. Bhagwa spaced at 5.04 X 4.2 m were selected for studies. The treatment consisting of three viz., T1 (Tissue culture), T2 (Grafted plants) and T3 (Air layered plants). The data collected on growth, yield and quality attributes were subjected to statistical analysis by using software IIHR-DMART AND SPHR, 2014. The results indicated that tissue cultured was found to be best in terms of increasing plant height (12.45 m), canopy spread (1.62 m NS and 2.06 m EW), canopy volume (4.37 m3), number of fruits plant-1 (42.03) , fruit yield plant-1 (9.39), individual fruit weight (223.53 g), fruit length (7.38 cm) fruit girth (24.88 cm), rind weight (96.68 g), aril weight (135.98 g) and rind to aril ratio (1.43) and quality attributes viz., Total Soluble Solids (13.78 o Brix), titrable acidity (0.32 %) and anthocyanin content (24.10 mg 100 g-1). From these results it could be concluded that plants raised through tissue culture plants improves the production and productivity of pomegranate and offers the possibility to obtain high quality fruits.
