Abstract: The present investigations entitled “Response of different combination of rootstock and scion on the success and growth of apple grafts (Malus x domestica Borkh.)” was carried out in Fruit Nursery, College of Horticulture, VCSG, Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar during 2015-2016. In this study, three rootstocks namely M-793, M-7 and MM-111 and three scion wood viz. Vance Delicious, Gold Spur and Oregan Spur selected and nine combinations of these rootstock and scion wood were made and grafted with three replications. The different parameters for this rootstock and scion combinations were recorded to evaluate the best combination. The treatment T1 ( M-793 + Vance Delicious) had maximum graft height, number of branches, number of leaves , rootstock diameter, scion diameter, root length and root diameter (i.e., 92.40, 15.33, 105.07, 10.12 mm, 9.96 mm, 25.27 cm and 12.03 mm respectively). The minimum days taken to bud sprout (10.58 days), and maximum percent survival (93.33 %) were recorded with T9 (MM-111 + Oregan Spur). The maximum leaf area (15.58 cm2) was recorded with T6 (MM- 111 + Gold Spur). Hence, the different combinations of rootstock and scion varied in their growth characteristics. The treatment T1 (M793 + Vance Delicious) was the best combination of rootstock and scion where healthy apple plants with good root and shoot growth were observed.
