Mango grafting booklet- A step-by-step guide
Grafting is a rapid vegetative propagation technique used to multiply plants identical to the desired parent tree. Propagation is the process of raising new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, bulbs and other plant parts. Grafted mango trees take a shorter time to start flowering and produce fruits. More trees can be accommodated per unit of land as trees grafted on a dwarfing rootstock grow less vigorously. Given the many mango varieties available, farmers have good opportunities to graft desired varieties with great market and domestic consumption potential.
