Abstract:

Apple is the leading fruit in the temperate regions of the world due its major share in the production of temperate fruit crops. Heterozygocity is the major problem for the production of true-to-type plants which leads to the production of propagule through vegetative means. Grafting is the one of the major artificial vegetative means of propagation. But the graft incompatibility and many other things lead to the failure of grafted plants. So in this experiment we used the scion wood of three apple cultivars (Vance Delicious, Gold Spur and Oregan Spur) which were Tung grafted on rootstocks M-793, M-7 and MM-111 in a series of different combination. The maximum graft height (92.40 cm), scion diameter (1.12cm), rootstock diameter (1.26), number of leaves per graft (105.07), root length (25.34 cm) and root diameter (1.21 cm) were observed in the rootstock and scion combination of Vance Delicious and M-793. The minimum days taken to bud sprout (10.58) and maximum % survival were observed in Oregon Spur and MM-111. It concludes that the combination between Vance delicious and M - 793 is the best for cultivation and other improvement program.
