Propagation By Cuttings

The following article is from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979). It might be outdated or ideologically biased.

Cuttings, Propagation By


a method of plant propagation by which a part of a plant is cut off and planted. Propagation by cuttings is used in fruit raising, ornamental horticulture, forestry, and the cultivation of certain industrial and medicinal plants. Root cuttings and stem cuttings (lignified stems without leaves or green stems with leaves) are most often used. Root cuttings are used to propagate raspberry, dewberry, young apple seedlings, and white poplar. Lignified stem cuttings are used to propagate currant, grape, quince, and fig. Green stem cuttings with two or three leaves are used to propagate currant, plum; cherry, grape, and certain varieties of gooseberry. Leaf cuttings are used to propagate begonia, violet, and some other plants.

Vegetative propagation by cuttings: In March 20th 2014, eight mature shrubs, located in glens consisting of oak forest vegetation, were selected for the harvesting of 96 cuttings from fourteen to eighteen young branches with straight growth.
Vegetative propagation by cuttings: The cuttings produced shoots and leaves within one month, which lasted for three months, at which point they began to wilt.
Conversely, propagation by cuttings has been a viable alternative used efficiently in the proliferation of some species of this genus (TAVARES et al., 2012; PIMENTA et al., 2007).
This stated, the level of success obtained in vegetative propagation by cuttings is determined by the relations between different factors such as physiological conditions of the stock plant, variations in the climatic environment, type and the position of collected sprouts on the stock plant, and more (ZUFFELLATO-RIBAS and RODRIGUES, 2001; HARTMANN et al., 2002).
The high percentage of rooted cuttings obtained in this research and the conclusions described by NERY (2010), that vegetative propagation by cutting is feasible, not being necessary the use of vegetal regulators to increase rooting, demonstrating that Psychotria nuda easily forms roots from stem cuttings.
Among the different approaches, vegetative propagation by cuttings is one of the most common.
In line with rooting being a critical step in vegetative propagation by cuttings, in our previous work an effective vegetative growth was set up for seedling-derived cuttings of oleaster, while rooting performance was not jet fully satisfactory.
