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

, : Container production of cashew seedling rootstocks - seed germination in beds as an alternative to direct sowing. Acta Horticulturae (49): 99-108

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.

Seeds were sown (5 seeds/bag) in clayey or sandy soils in polyethylene bags measuring 36 x 46 cm, 30 x 41 cm and 16 x 36 cm. Soil temperature and soil water retention properties were measured. Percentage germination was highest in 16 x 36 cm bags...
