The present investigation was conducted at Horticultural Research Centre, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology, Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, during 2013-14 under subtropical climatic conditions of western Uttar Pradesh with a view to find out the response of Amrapali mango to time and techniques of grafting. The experiment was carried out in factorial RCBD with five replications in each treatment. There were four grafts in each replication of all 9 treatment combinations. The treatment combinations were comprised of three time of grafting i.e. (25th July, 10th August and 25th August) with three methods of grafting viz, veneer grafting, softwood grafting and epicotyl grafting. Studies revealed that epicotyl grafting performed on 10th August recorded minimum time (15.70 days) for bud sprouting while as softwood grafting performed on 25th August recorded maximum time (20.80 days) for bud sprouting. Veneer grafting performed on 10th August was found to be the best technique in terms of sprouting percentage (79.60 %) after one and six month of grafting. Therefore, veneer grafting should be preferred over softwood and epicotyl grafting in order to get better survival and over all sprout growth for commercial propagation of quality plants of Amrapali mango.
