Abstract:
The field experiment entitled Studies on various techniques of soft wood grafting in tamarind (Tamarindus indica L.) was conducted during the summer season of year 2012 at fruit research station, Aurangabad. The experiment laid out in spilt plot design with three defoliation treatment viz., D0: defoliation on the day of grafting, D1:4 days prior defoliation and D2:8 days prior defoliation as a main plot, three storage condition of scion sticks viz., P0: open condition or without use of polythene bag, P1: use of 2 x 11" polythene bag and P2: use of 6 x 9" polythene bag as a sub plot. Grafting was done in month of April 2012 from the result of experiment. It can be concluded that among different days tested, 8 days prior defoliation recorded highest growth and survival than 4 days prior defoliation and on the day of grafting respectively from different storage condition for scion sticks P2 shows significantly superior in growth character than P1 and P0, while survival percentage found maximum P0 than P1 and P2.
