Air layering method for vegetative propagation of Guava (Psidium guajava L.)


Taichiro Nagata and Yuki Yukita


The research focuses on exploring the efficacy of the air layering technique for the vegetative propagation of Guava (Psidium guajava L.). This study aims to evaluate the potential of air layering as an alternative propagation method, offering a potential solution to the challenges faced in traditional propagation techniques. The experiment involved applying air layering procedures to guava plants under controlled environmental conditions, with parameters such as rooting success rate, root length, and overall plant health being systematically observed and recorded over a set period. Preliminary results indicated a promising success rate in root formation and subsequent plant development. This study not only contributes to the existing body of knowledge on guava cultivation but also opens up new avenues for efficient and sustainable propagation techniques in fruit cultivation. The findings hold significant implications for both commercial and small-scale guava farming, offering a viable method for enhancing productivity and sustainability in guava cultivation.
