 ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted during 2013-14 in the experimental vineyard of Grape Research Station, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad to study the effect of different rootstocks (1103 P, SO4, Dog ridge and own root) on growth and yield of commercial Grape varieties (Thompson Seedless, Flame Seedless and Kishmish Chorni).Rootstock plays a vital role in manipulation of the vine growth and productivity in grape.  It has potential for combating the soil problems and also has ability to tolerate abiotic stresses viz., drought, salinity etc. Besides these, rootstocks also ensure profitable production by enhancing uniform growth and yield. Irrespective of the varieties, the Dogridge rootstock found to be vigorous in terms of pruning weight (3.29 kg/vine), cane diameter (8.07 mm), number of bunches per vine (34.26) and yield (13.06 kg/vine) whereas earliness in terms of bud break was reported with own root (9.06 days) compared to the rootstocks.

Key words: Rootstocks, Pruning weight, Yield, Thompson Seedless, Flame Seedless, Kishmish Chorni.
