Standardization of suitable time and method of grafting for raising Sohiong (Prunus nepalensis L.) under mid-hill conditions of Meghalaya

Author(s): Basu Langpoklakpam, B Chandra Deka and RK Patel
Abstract: The present investigation on “Standardization of suitable time and method of grafting for raising Sohiong (Prunus nepalensis L.) under mid-hill conditions of Meghalaya” was carried out in the experimental field and laboratory of the Division of Horticulture, ICAR, (RC) for NEH region, Barapani (Umiam), Meghalaya during the year 2009-2010. Two grafting methods viz., tongue grafting and wedge grafting were tried at 30th September and 15th October to identify the suitable method and time of grafting for raising Sohiong plants. Method, time of grafting and its interaction had significant effect on days to first sprouting, sprouting duration and graft success. Tongue grafting performed on 15th October recorded the highest graft success (98%) followed by wedge grafting (96%) done on the same date. Similarly, subsequent plant growth characteristics and highest survival percentage (85.78%) was recorded under tongue grafting especially when done on 15th October. However, wedge grafting done on 30th September recorded the lowest graft success (58%) and minimum survival percentage (69.56%).
