Abstract:
The effect of different factors on rooting of mango cuttings under intermittent mist was studies on cuttings taken from young seedlings of four polyembryonic cultivars. Best results were obtained by retaining 4 – 6 leaves on semi-hardwood cuttings and dipping the cutting bases in talcum powder containing 1% Benomyl and 1% potassium salt of indole-3-butyric acid. Aerated media [e.g. peat: polystyrene shredded flakes (1:1/v:v)] and bottom heat of 25° to 30°C were optimal.

Under optimal rooting conditions, differences were found in the rooting capability of various clones, ranging from 75 to 100% for cuttings taken from young seedlings and from 0 to 100% for cuttings taken from grafted stock plants of selected clones.
