An experiment was conducted during 2019-20 at INS farm -1, SOADU, Bhubaneswar in order to study the variation regarding morphological parameters, plant physiological condition, and survival of the grafts, when different varieties were used as scion material. The experiment consists of five different popular mango varieties namely cv. Mallika, cv. Arka Neelachal Kesari, cv. Arka Puneet, cv. Amrapalli, and cv. Dussehri as scion varieties. One local cv. “Ganga” cultivar was used as rootstock for all the scion varieties and was also used as one of the scion (control). The total six combinations taken as six different treatments replicated four times in a complete randomized design. The soft wood grafting was carried out in the month of August under polyhouse condition and the grafts were maintained at the protected structure for entire observation period. The results of the investigation indicated that grafting with different varieties had significant effect on the grafts when the rootstock remained common. Among various important morphological parameters observed, the grafts with cv. Arka Neelachal Kesari was superior in terms of earliest bud emergence (15.4 DAG), maximum scion (3.63) and root stock diameter (4.11).The grafts with cv. Arka Puneet as scion has the longest taproot, lowest stionic ratio and maximum survival percentage among all and has recommended as the best combiner for the local rootstock cv. Ganga.

Keywords: Environmental parameters, Age of rootstock, Method of grafting and cultivar
