Vegetative propagation of guava (Psidium guajava L.) trees using root cuttings technique under glasshouse conditions

Mohammed H. Mekki, Osman M. Elamin, Ali E. El Jack



In Sudan, guava is generally propagated from seeds. Seedlings were variable in both plant and fruit characteristics, because of heterozygosity. Vegetative propagation of tree clones is difficult and needs special care. However, there is evidence indicating that the propagation of superior varieties is most easily accomplished by the use of root cuttings (Morton, 1987). In Sudan, superior trees are well known to the growers but they are very difficult to propagate vegetatively. Therefore, the present investigation was conducted to highlight the possibility of vegetative propagation of guava trees using root cuttings technique.
