About this eBook

PREFACE Horticulture has emerged as one of the most important sector for diversification of agriculture. Revolution in agriculture can only be achieved by increasing the production of horticultural crops. The major constraint which limits the productivity of horticultural crops in India is the non-availability of genuine and quality planting materials. Thus the production of genuine planting materials can be done by establishing nurseries in India. Plant materials can be raised by adopting proper techniques of plant propagation in the nurseries. Thus the plant propagation work has been recognised as a fundamental practice in the field of horticulture. The nurseries must be equipped with all the required technological facilities which have recently developed. The nurserymen and the growers face some problems and difficulties during multiplication of fruit and ornamental plants. This book will provides fundamental informations required for raising a nursery. The methods of vegetative propagation like cutting, layering, grafting and budding have discussed in a comprehensive form. Cultural practices, plant protection measures, and standardisation of the methods for commercial propagation of some selected horticultural plants have also been taken under consideration. The book is written in a simple and understandable language. Incorporation of line drawings and coloured photographs has made this book more attractive to the readers. The materials included in this book is considered useful to the undergraduate and postgraduate students of agricultural universities and colleges, growers, nurserymen, horticulturists and gardeners. I wish to express my gratitude to Dr. R.G. Maiti, Retired Professor in horticulture, Dr. T.P. Mukhopadhyay, Dr. B.C. Das and Dr. A.K. Pal of B.C.K.V., Kalyani, Dr. S. Mukherjee of UBKV of Cooch Bihar, Dr. D. Burman of NRC for orchids, Sikkim and Mr. G.C. Das for their constant encouragement during the preparation of this book.
