The Effects of Five Avocado Rootstocks on Seedling Properties of Commercial Avocado Cultivars
In this study, results of which have been presented, our aim is to determine avocado commercial cultivars grown in Antalya- Turkey ecological conditions and their graft compatibity with Persea americana var. drymifolia and P. nubigena var. guatemolensis avocado rootstocks. In the research as experimental material Topa Topa, Blace, Mexicola, W1 and W2 rootstocks together with Hass, Fuerte, Zutano and Bacon commercial avocado cultivars have been used. The study was conducted between 2006- 2007 in BATEM. The results of the experiment have shown that rootstocks were statistically significant in the graft survival rate (%), rootstock diameter (cm), scion diameter (cm), shoot length (cm) and in terms of properties, and the best results could be achived from plants which are Fuerte avocado cultivar grafted on Topa Topa rootstock.
