Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on the effect age and curing of scion on cost: benefit ratio in softwood grafting of sapota from 2014 to 2015 at the College Research Farm, Department of Fruit Science, College of Horticulture, Mudigere. The sapota grafted on 3 months age old scion resulted in maximum net income (`18,500 per 1000 grafts) and cost: benefit ratio (1.76), which were followed by 6 months age old scion (`16,500 per1000 grafts) and(1.57), whereas they are minimum (` 13,500 per 1000 grafts) and (1.28) in 12 months age old scion. The sapota grafted with 10 days cured scion resulted in maximum net income (`20,750 per 1000 grafts) and cost: benefit ratio (1.93), which were followed by 8 days cured scion (` 16,750 per 1000grafts) and (1.55), whereas they are minimum (`7,750 per 1000 grafts) and (0.75) in 0 days cured scion. The 3 months age old with 10 days cured scion resulted in maximum net income (`22,250 per 1000 grafts) and cost: benefit ratio (2.06), which were followed by 6 months age old with 10 days cured scion (` 20,250 per 1000 grafts) and (1.88), whereas they are minimum (` 10,050 per 1000 grafts) and (1.01) in 9 months age old with 0 days cured scion. The high benefit ratio is mainly because of using the three months age old scion with ten days curing which helped in giving the higher success rate because of their actively growing.
