Role of Grafting Technique on the Success of Stenting Propagation of Two Rose (Rosa sp.) Varieties


The influence of two grafting techniques on the success of stenting (simultaneous cutting and grafting) and some ensuing growth parameters of stentlings were studied under glasshouse conditions. The Avalanch and Peach Avalanch glasshouse rose varieties were utilized as scion and grafted on R. manetti as rootstock. Two grafting techniques namely, splice and omega grafting methods were practiced and graft combinations were inserted in cocopeat-perlit (1:2) medium under mist system. The number of roots, longest root size, shoots and leaf numbers and successful grafting percentage were evaluated after grafting. In Avalanch/R. manetti and Peach Avalanch/R. manetti combinations, higher percentage of successful grafting was observed in the stentlings propagated via omega grafting technique. Furthermore Avalanch/R. manetti stentlings prepared by omega grafting were found to produce more number of roots, shoots and leaves and longest root size as compared to those propagated through splice grafting method. In case of Peach Avalanch/R. manetti combinations propagated via omega grafting more number of shoots was observed as compared to those propagated by splice method. However, these were not significantly different with respect to their leaf numbers. The results showed the superiority of omega grafting procedure.
