Branching of ?Galaxy Gala? Apple Scion on Selected ?Tahar? Apple Rootstocks (Malus sylvestris spp. orientalis)

Semih Caglar [2] | Seda Aysabar

Abstract: In this study the effect of three selected rootstock genotypes from the dwarf Tahar apple population (Malus sylvestris ssp. orientalis), grown in nature in the center of Asia Minor, on the growth and branching of Galaxy Gala apple scion were investigated. Nine rooted plants from each genotype were planted and chip budded. Morphological measurements were done on the nursery trees scion after two years of growth in the nursery. The three rootstock genotypes produced different growing habit and branch architecture. t was concluded that they could be nominee for developing new dwarf apple rootstocks in areas where water is scarce.
