Abstract:

The present investigation entitled “Effect of size of cuttings on rooting of different clonal rootstocks of apple” was carried out in shade net house conditions of apple and pear block of Department of Fruit Science, Dr Y S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry Nauni, Solan HP during the year 2018-19. The experiment was laid out in Randomised Block Design comprising of 12 treatments replicated thrice. The results revealed that maximum rooting percentage (73.53%), total root length (17.46 m), fresh and dry weight of roots (6.43 g and 2.88 g, respectively), average length and diameter of roots (25.87 cm and 3.25 mm, respectively) were recorded in the treatment combination of cutting length 12 cm of Merton 793 rootstock, whereas the maximum number of main roots (7.43) were observed in treatment combination of 12 cm long cuttings of MM 106 rootstock.
