Abstract:
A study was conducted to evaluate the method and time of grafting on vegetative growth of pecan (Carya illinoensis Wangenh). Three grafting method, viz. Tongue grafting, Cleft grafting and Side grafting with four different timings, viz. 4th week of February, 1st week of March, 2nd week of March and 3rd week of March were used. The results indicated that among all the grafting methods, tongue grafting performed during 1st week of March showed maximum number of leaves (24.55), leaf area (193.66 cm2), number of secondary roots (8.88), plant spread (41.44 cm) in north-south and (45.66 cm) in east-west direction and plant biomass (131.37 g). Hence, the grafting performed during the 1st week of March showed better performance on vegetation as compared to other dates of grafting.
