ISHS Acta Horticulturae 49: III Africa Symposium on Horticultural Crops

VEGETATIVE PROPAGATION OF TROPICAL TREE CROPS WITH EMPHASIS ON CACAO (THEOBROMA CACAO L.) AND KOLA (COLA NITIDA, (VENT.) (SCHOTT AND ENDLICHER)

Author:   G.A. Ashiru
Abstract:
Plant production by cuttings is one of the oldest methods of vegetative propagation and is also one of the most frequently used present-day techniques for the production of clones of various fruit trees (Archibald, 1955; Ashiru and Carlson, 1968; van Eijnatten, 1969; Ibikunle, 1972). Extensive research has shown that many tropical tree crops which are propagated vegetatively come into early maturity and bear fruits within a few years, compared with trees which are raised from seedling material (Ashiru and Quarcoo, 1971; van Eijnatten, 1969; Jacob and Opeke, 1969; Russell, 1955).
