Performance of Various Sizes of Nodal Tea Cuttings of Camellia sinensis L. as Affected by Different Timings of Planting

Waqar Ahmad Awan, Noor Badshah and Abdul Waheed    

Abstract: The research on planting of various sizes of nodal tea cuttings (single and double) on different timings viz. June 20, July 20, August 20, September 20 and October 20, 1998 was carried out at the National Tea Research Institute, Shinkiari, District Mansehra (NWFP) in 1998-99. Planting of cuttings on June 20, 1998 significantly increased the percent survival (94.0%), shoot length (8.75 cm), number of branches (1.90), number of leaves (7.50), in contrast to minimum values for all parameters recorded (49.50%, 3.53 cm, 1.08, 2.0, respectively) by planting the nodal cuttings on October 20, 1998. Significant maximum values for all parameters were obtained in single nodal cuttings when planted on June 20, followed by July 20, 1998.
