Effects of seedling age of scions grafted in eggplant plug seedlings on the growth and yield of eggplant



Effects of seedling age of scions grafted in eggplant plug seedlings on the growth and yield of eggplant



Research Bulletin of the Aichi-ken Agricultural Research Center (30): 131-138



We researched on the relationship of the first fruit, the age of seedling where scions had been taken, and the node position of intial bearing to devise ways that would not delay harvesting time of first fruit thus, reducing deterioration of fruit quality of eggplant cultivated by direct planting in plug seedlings. When the first flower was removed, the plant grew very well during early stage. This shows that the first bearing influences early growth. There was a significant inverse correlation between seedling age where scions were taken and the node posion of the first fruit. Plants grafted with scions taken from seedling of advanced age bore first fruit in low node posion and maintained favorable growth at early stage. Having first fruit in the lower node position causes an earlier occurrence of first harvest, lengthens the bearing branches and more increases the number of bearing parts, all of which contributes to high total yield.
