Growth Of Loblolly Scion Material On Rootstocks Of Known Genetic Origin

Scion material was collected from compatible and incompatible loblolly ramets and grafted onto known families of loblolly and slash pine. Early evaluation of scion growth indicated significant differences between the two clones used as a source of scions. No difference was observed between rootstock species, although families within rootstock species did show to influence the growth of the scion material. Graft survival was 93.1 percent and was not statistically analyzed. Additional keywords: Grafting, graft development, vegetative propagation, Pinus elliottii, P. taeda.
