THE TWIN-SCALING TECHNIQUE FOR NARCISSUS PROPAGATION

Authors:   A.R. Rees, Gordon R. Hanks
DOI:   10.17660/ActaHortic.1980.109.29
Abstract:
The use of twin-scaling as a rapid propagation technique for narcissus over the past decade has resulted in the development of a successful standard technique for use especially with virus-free stocks. Three experiments are described which help to improve the technique; these are concerned with date of twin-scaling, twin-scale size and twinscale age. Other methods to supplement twin-scaling are discussed, emphasising the need for more rapid methods of cutting up bulbs and for optimising subsequent growing conditions in the field to achieve maximum yields.
