Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to find the role of physiological and biochemical factors in the success of different propagation methods of annual Moringa cv.PKM 1 with respect to root initiation, growth and graft compatibility. The biochemical factors viz., orthodihydroxy phenol content, total phenol, peroxidase activity, catalase activity, total carbohydrate, total nitrogen, starch content, and C/N ratio were assessed in the different propagation materials viz., limb cuttings, air layering, grafts of annual Moringa cv.PKM 1 scion with Moolanur Moringa rootstock and Karumbu Moringa rootstock and seedling of annual Moringa cv.PKM 1. Lowest content of ortho dihydroxy phenol, total phenol, with highest peroxidase activity, catalase activity, carbohydrate, starch and nitrogen content were noticed in the grafts with perennial Moolanur Moringa rootstock and annual Moringa cv.PKM 1 scion followed by graft with perennial Karumbu Moringa rootstock with annual Moringa cv.PKM 1 scion which favoured highest success in terms of compatibility than other propagation methods.
