Mardjani Aliyah, Slamet Susanto, Dewi Sukma and Sintho Wahyuning Ardie

Abstract:
Pummelo (Citrus maxima (Burm.) Merr.) is one of important horticulture commodity in Indonesia. Most of pummelo which is cultivated in Indonesia came from grafted seedling. There are some problem in using grafted seedling, namely: Limited number of plant material, the size of grafted seedling is not uniform and heavy grafted is caused damaging to mother plant. One of alternative seedling performance improvement of pummelo is by strangulation and pinching. This research conducted aimed to study the effect of combination of strangulation and pinching to change the performance of young pummelo. The treatment of strangulation and pinching on young pummelo showed significant difference to the variables observed. Interaction between strangulation and pinching showed significant difference on root and canopy dry weight. Combination treatment of double strangulation with pinching produced early bud emergence, more number of leaves, wider leaf area, elongation and larger stem diameter.
