Microbudding in bael as influenced by foliar spray of NAA and BA on rootstock and scion
Keywords:Micro-budding, NAA, BA, foliar spray of PGRs, Bael (Aegle marmelos Correa.)
Conducted an experiment in nursery with five levels of plant growth regulators i.e., control (T1), NAA 25 % (T2), NAA 50 % (T3), BA 25 % (T4) and BA 50 % (T5) replicated thrice and selected five plants per replication under complete randomized block design. Total 75 saplings under experimentation, under this experiment, three to four months old rootstocks and 30-40 cm long scion sticks were selected for spraying different concentrations of NAA and BA at 7 days before the budding operation. The treated bud sticks were used for excision of buds for budding on treated rootstocks. Results revealed that budding operation was performed on rootstocks treated with BA 50 ppm, it was possible to produce saleable size budded saplings in relatively shorter period as compared to control i.e. within 60 days after budding.
