Abstract: Present study was carried out to investigate the effect of the height of root-stock on the success and growth parameters of grafts employing the method of soft-wood grafting in various varieties of mango scion. The experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Garden, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, during 2015-16 and 2016-17. The experiment was performed with the mango scion cultivars, Amrapali, Mallika, Dashehari, Chausa, Langra and Bombay Green as the main plot treatments and the root-stock heights, 25 cm, 50 cm, 75 cm and 100 cm as the sub-plot treatments, in split-plot design with 3 replications. Two-way ANOVA statistical analysis was carried out to test significance of different effects. The mango cultivar Langra showed the best results for the percent graft take success, the scion-shoot length, the scion-shoot girth and the number of leaves per plant. Amongst the various tested cultivars, Dashehari performed the best in respect of sprout initiation (12.08 days), Langra performed best in respect of the percent graft take success (69.17%), scion shoot length (22.69 cm), scion shoot girth (17.97 mm) and number of leaves (25.19) per plant; while Chausa showed the highest percent graft survival (83.67%). The root-stock of height 100 cm revealed the best results for the percent graft take success (66.11%), the percent graft survival (82.11%), the scion-shoot length (22.60 cm) and the number of leaves per plant (25.07). The grafting done on the 75 cm height gave the best results for the sprouting time (12.06 days) and the scion-shoot girth (16.31 mm).
