Container production of cashew seedling rootstocks - seed germination in beds as an alternative to direct sowing

Acta Horticulturae (49): 99-108
Container production of cashew seedling rootstocks - seed germination in beds as an alternative to direct sowing
Cashew seedlings were successfully transplanted from beds to containers immediately after plumule emergence. When moved at this stage they received no check, required no special aftercare and subsequently performed as well as others which were direct sown. Transplanting at 5 to 7 days after emergence proved less satisfactory owing to breakage and loss of lateral roots and the lower part of taproots.
