Abstract: Asexual propagation methods for fruit plants can determine the quality and quantity of yield produce. Different asexual propagating methods are used with various positive and negative effects in raising mango cultivars. Here in present study we evaluation different grafting techniques for producing better quality mango (mangifera indical.) cultivars. The experimental was laid out in two factors Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with mango varieties (langra, fajve, doseve, begam Pali and shani khuda) and two Grafted methods (Side grafting and T- Grafting) as factors. The results depicted that all parameter for growth and development in mango grafted plants were significantly affected during the experiment for instance variety langra (V1) and side grafting. Showed significant result for all parameter studied that maximum days to sprouting (23.29), Shoot length (8.55 cm) and No of buds (10.33) were recorded in plants treated with variety Langra (V1). T-grafting produces more days to sprouting (24.44), No of leaves (21.73), Shoot diameter (3.97 mm) and No of buds (11.66). It can be concluded from the present findings that the T-grafting can improve the days to sprouting, No of leaves, shoot length, shoot diameter and No of buds of variety Langra (V1) of Mango under the agro. Climatic condition of Malakand.
