A research was carried out during 2015-16 in Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh to find out the effect of grafting height on success of softwood grafting in mango. Variation due to different grafting height was found significant and among different grafting height significantly, highest graft success percentage (59.44 %), survival percentage (49.44 %) maximum shoot length of scion (13.61 cm), total number of leaves (12.77), plant height (75.23 cm) and stock girth (9.33 mm) were recorded at 60 cm (H3) followed by H2. However, maximum scion girth (8.58 mm) was recorded at 40 cm (H2). Likewise, lowest shoot length (11.91 cm), total number of leaves (10.84), plant height (33.07 cm), scion girth (7.42 mm) and stock girth (8.55 mm) were noted in 20 cm (H1).
Key words: Mango, Height, Success percentage, Growth parameter.
