Abstract:
The present investigation was carried with the objectives to standardize the grafting methods and rootstocks for low chill peach cv. Shan- e-Punjab under semi-arid irrigated ecosystem of Haryana at CCSHAU, Hisar. Experiment consisting of three rootstocks viz., Peach cv. Sharbati seedling and rooted cutting of Japanese plum cv. Kala Amritsari and European plum cv. Green Gage and three grafting method viz., tongue, wedge and whip laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with three replications. Results reveal that among grafting methods, tongue grafting was found superior to wedge and whip grafting; whereas, among rootstock, peach cv. Sharbati was superior to plum rootstocks for graft success, plant height, leaf area, percent increase in scion diameter, root: shoot ratio, relative water content (RWC), leaf nitrogen, phosphorus and chlorophyll contents. However, between plum rootstocks, European plum cv. Green Gage was found better than Japanese plum cv. Kala Amritsari for graft success, plant height, and root: shoot ratio, leaf nitrogen and chlorophyll contents. This study also provides the opportunity for further research whether this trend continues in the productive year of the peach plant.
