Different methods of Grafting includes, Whip/ tongue grafting
In this method, a straight slunting cut is made on both the Scion and root stock.
They are then joined together and wrapped with a grafting tape.
It is used for materials of the same diameters.
Wedge /cleft grafting
This is used when the stock diameter is bigger than that of the Scion.
The root stock is cut to form a V- shape and the scion to form a wedge shape. The Scion is then inserted in the stock. Wax is put over the cut surface to prevent drying.
This is the grafting of a scion of a small diameter into an already growing tree.
A cut is made into the stock at an angle of 20o – 30o and the scion is inserted to ensure firm contact between the cambium of the stock and the scion.
A Scion with a deep V – cut is fitted onto the stock.
Other types of grafting include:
Budding (bud grafting)
