Abstract:
A grafting study was conducted with seven rootstocks viz., MO1 (Moolanur Moringa), MO2 (Karumbu moringa), MO3 (ODC moringa), MO4 (KMU moringa), MO5 (Padasolai local), MO6 (Kallivalasu local), MO7 (Puthupalayam local) and PKM 1 scion was used to assess the graft compatibility and best perennial rootstock for annual moringa cv. PKM 1. Among the rootstocks, MO1 (Moolanur moringa) has taken less number of days for germination of seeds (8.20 days) and showed the highest germination percentage (79.40%) when compared with other perennial rootstocks. Success percentage was more in graft combination of MO1 (Moolanur moringa) rootstock with PKM 1 scion (51.20% and 47.20%) on 20th and 40th day after grafting with lesser number of days to attain graftable size (25.40 days) and graft union (14.20 days).
