The grafting of this category of trees can only be done after a tadpole cut, eliminating the crown.
Seedling carob rootstocks are variable both in vigor and compatibility with varieties budded upon them. Propagation by rooted cuttings is needed for more uniformity of orchard trees of the best varieties. In the past, rooting of small leafy tip cuttings has proved difficult and subsequent growth was not satisfactory. Successful rooting of cuttings by the"Airwrap" method is herein described.
In Tunisia, a study of genetic diversity using isozymes, in 17 populations distributed in four bioclimatic zones, revealed a great genetic diversity and a substantial level of endogamy in these populations.
The work was performed. This investigation was conducted through two seasons of 20on Carob. The mature Carob seeds and cuttings were collected from a female tree grown at the Experimental Orchard Station of Horticulture Research Institute at Giza, Egypt. Seeds and cuttings were scarified and disinfected under aseptic conditions with some treatments to improve the germination percentage and the percentage of success of cuttings.
Prepare growing containers while the carob seeds soak. Fill 4-inch peat pots with a mixture of half sterile compost and half perlite. Pour water onto the mixture until it is saturated.
