Rooting trial of several peach and plum varieties by hardwood cuttings

Acta Horticulturae (54): 63-70

Rooting trial of several peach and plum varieties by hardwood cuttings

Hardwood cuttings of 164 peach and 65 plum cvs were obtained at the end of November and December, respectively, and treated with IBA at 2000 p.p.m. in solutions of (1) dilute alcohol or (2) ammonia. Controls were untreated. They were inserted in a peat substrate at 20 deg C for 2 months. The rooting percentages are tabulated. In general, peach cuttings rooted best with treatment (1) and plum with (2). The highest rooting ability was shown by the peach cvs Flordahome, Prof.
