REZENDE, LEILA DE PAULA and PEREIRA, FERNANDO MENDES. PRODUCTION OF 'RUBI' GRAPEVINE SCION BY BENCH-GRAFTING OF IAC 313 'TROPICAL' AND IAC 766 'CAMPINAS' HERBACEOUS CUTTINGS. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2001, vol.23, n.3, pp. 662-667. ISSN 0100-2945. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452001000300044.
Trials were developed under intermittent mist, at the Faculdade de Ciências Agrárias e Veterinárias ¾ UNESP, Câmpus de Jaboticabal, SP, Brazil, in the period of november of 1997 to december of 1999, with the objective of studying the grapevine scion obtained by bench-grafting of herbaceous cuttings. Herbaceous branches of IAC 313 'Tropical' and IAC 766 'Campinas' rootstocks and Rubi cultivar were used. Grafted cuttings were obtained by process of bench grafting (cleft grafting and budding). Type protection of graft, type of cuttings and container-grow were investigated. The rooting and graft takes were evaluated. The process of bench grafting by cleft grafting showed high graft takes to 30 (45,25%) and 60 days (66,20%) after grafting. The type of cuttings didn't affect the graft takes. But, the survival index graft in all trials was lower and null. Herbaceous cutting without grafting showed more rooting rate (55,62%) than the herbaceous cuttings with bench grafting (50,56%). The process of bench grafting of IAC 313 'Tropical' and IAC 766 'Campinas' herbaceous cuttings wasn't efficient for plant grapevine formation.
