Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to assess the effect of grafting time on success of softwood grafting in mango (Mangifera indica Linn) was conducted during 2015-16 at the Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, JAU, Junagadh. Total six treatment of grafting time comprised of 15th August (T1), 30th August (T2), 15th September (T3), 30th September (T4), 15th October (T5) and 30th October (T6). The study revealed that low phenol content (1.23 %) was recorded in 15th September grafting (T3). Significantly, highest graft success percentage (80 %), survival percentage (71.11 %), maximum shoot length (14.99 cm), number of leaves (14.85), plant height (56.61 cm), Scion girth (8.81 mm) and stock girth (9.25 mm) were registered in 15th September (T3), however it was found at par with 30th August (T2). Highest carbohydrate content (12.78 %) and numbers of days for shoot emergence (12.07) was noted at 30th August (T2). Similarly, lowest carbohydrate content (11.52 %), maximum days to shoot emergence (15.40), minimum success percentage (23.33 %), survival percentage (20.00 %), shoot length of scion (9.85 cm), total number of leaves (8.66), plant height (50.67 cm), scion girth (6.75 mm) and stock girth (8.45 mm) were noted in 30th October (T6) whereas, highest phenol content (2.95 %) was noted in 15th October (T5).
