Similarly, application of modified cleft grafting type resulted in the formation of the highest shoot lignification length in Alphonse Lavallee and Perlette (Fig.
This percentage is quite similar to those of Pathirana and McKenzie (2005) who performed modified cleft grafting for use in viral indexing of grapevines Cabernet franc and Cabernet sauvignon, reaching an overall graft-take success rate of 83.
Of the three different green grafting methods tested in this study, modified cleft grafting generally gave better results in terms of shoot length, shoot diameter, shoot lignification length, leaf number per shoot and graft take parameters.
The whip-and-tongue and cleft grafting techniques used in the present study were statistically similar; therefore, either one can be used.
The whip-and-tongue and cleft grafting techniques were the most promising methods for the vegetative propagation of jabuticabeira Acu, in combination with plants of the same species.
2010) in quince trees, which showed that cleft grafting promotes a greater length of grafts, even when they are kept in cold storage.
At that time, another batch of rootstock plants were also grafted by cleft grafting method, using three-bud scion sticks.
Cleft grafting resulted in the highest graft survival rate, as compared with the budding method in the winter and in the summer for most scion cultivars, except 'Provence' cultivar, which presented graft survival rate of 72% when grafted by cleft grafting, and graft survival rate of 75% by winter budding (Table 1).
No major differences were registered in scion stem length and scion stem diameter between cleft grafting and budding methods 90 days after grafting (Tables 1 and 2).
Usually, temperate fruit crops have better graft survival rate when the process is performed by cleft grafting during the hibernal period (HARTMANN et al.
However, the cleft grafting favors higher graft survival rate and faster shoot development (BARBOSA et al.
When 'Japones' quince was grafted on itself, cleft grafting lead to 100% graft survival rate, as compared with 30 and 10% for winter budding and summer budding, respectively.
