Observations on vegetative propagation of avocados (Persea americana) at Thika

, : Observations on vegetative propagation of avocados (Persea americana) at Thika. Acta Horticulturae (49): 91-94

Poor results were obtained in a budding trial. In a grafting trial where 10-cm scion pieces were inserted in the rootstock about 15-cm above soil level, the whip method was rather more successful than the side method, and the whip-and-tongue method gave the lowest percentage take.
