Abstract:
The present investigation was undertaken during 2020-2021 with objectives to standardize suitable method of propagation for rapid multiplication in guava and to study the growth of plants multiplied by different methods of propagation. There were six treatments viz., tongue layering in earthen pot, tongue layering in polybag, air layering, saddle grafting, wedge grafting and modified wedge grafting with four repetitions. The minimum number of days taken for sprouting(11.50 days), maximum graft take percentage (91.25%), maximum sprouting percentage (86.75%), maximum height of layer/graft (49.18 cm) and maximum number of leaves per shoot(9.50)were recorded in tongue layering in polybag. Maximum number of shoots per layer/graft (5.69) was recorded in saddle grafting and maximum number of leaves per layer/graft (46.68) was recorded under tongue layering in polybag. The maximum (3.09 cm) girth of layer/graft was recorded in air layering. The highest success percentage (82.75%) and highest survival percentage (95.40%) were recorded under tongue layering in polybag.
