Studies into the effects of forced shoot etiolation and different media on the rootage of Mangifera indica L. cuttings

, : Studies into the effects of forced shoot etiolation and different media on the rootage of Mangifera indica L. cuttings. Acta Horticulturae (24): 77-81

Forced and unforced, etiolated and non-etiolated mango cuttings were kept under mist in 5 rooting media. Rooting and establishment were better in forced than in unforced cuttings in all media, and were further improved by etiolation. Data are tabulated on the chemical composition of the cuttings; forced shoots contained more moisture than unforced shoots and etiolation increased the moisture content and total carbohydrate in both types. The C/N ratio was much higher in unforced shoots.
