The results of present investigation revealed that among different defoliation treatment and storage of scion stick, defoliated and one day stored scion stick of jamun var. Goma Priyanka, individually superior in all the growth parameters like minimum days required to leaf emergence, maximum number of leaves and leaf area. While, sprouting percentage was significant individually as well as in their combination. Hence it can be concluded that defoliated and one day stored scion stick of jamun var.
