Effect of Interstock on Growth of Vigorous Mango Cultivars under Eastern Plateau and Hill Region of India

Effect of Interstock on Growth of Vigorous Mango Cultivars under Eastern Plateau and Hill Region of India

Investigations were undertaken at Ranchi of Jharkhand state of India to test the efficacy of mango genotypes Amrapali and Latra be used as interstocks for reducing the plant size of vigorous but popular mango varieties viz. Langra, Himsagar and Bombay Green under eastern plateau and hill conditions of India. Data on plant growth parameters during 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 indicated decrease in rate of growth of plant height, canopy spread, girth of rootstock, girth of interstock, girth of scion, average length of shoot extension growth in cultivars Himsagar and Bombay Green with interstock of Amrapali. Hence, it was concluded that mango cultivar Amrapali can be effectively used as interstock for reducing plant vigour of mango cultivars Himsagar and Bombay Green....
