Selection of mango rootstocks for adverse water and soil conditions in arid areas

, : Selection of mango rootstocks for adverse water and soil conditions in arid areas. Acta Horticulturae: 81-87

A total of 3200 seedlings of 80 varieties and types were irrigated with saline water using tricklers. Only a few groups, especially those of the polyembryonic 13/1 and its kin exhibited strong resistance to salinity.

Selection of mango (Mangifera indica L.) rootstocks resistant to the mango wilt fungus Ceratocystis fimbriata Ell & Halst. Mangoes resistant to C. fimbriata were selected following inoculation with isolates FITO334-1 and FITO4905, the predominant races occurring in the State of Sao Paulo, by soil watering with pure cultures in liquid potato-dextrose medium. The cultiv...

In Granada and Jaen cultivation methods used increase the storage capacity of the soil, but in Saragossa and Almeria cultivation methods have no effect on water economy since rainfall never exceeds the storage capacity of the soil.

Since a large part of the annual rainfall in the arid and semi-arid areas is torrential in nature, with heavy losses through run-off, the object of this study is to ascertain to what extent water supplies are affected by soil conservation work and...
