grafting avocado trees is one way to multiply trees of the same quality as their mothers. This technique is widely chosen because it is easier and faster. In addition, the results are approximately the same as the grafted parent tree.

It should be noted that the grafting technique is done by peeling the outer skin of the tree branch. The peeling of the tree's own skin is only 10-15 cm. After peeling it, it is then given soil to stimulate the new assembler in the tree branch so that the roots can be planted elsewhere. The technique of grafting avocado trees is as follows.

After choosing the branches, peel the skin and crack the cambium. The beating and stabbing were carried out with a clean knife without contamination of harmful substances. The contamination from the knife will interfere with root growth.

After peeling and dredging have been successfully carried out, cover it with fertile soil. Covering the soil can be done with cloth to keep it moist, then tie the top and bottom to resemble candy.

The characteristics of grafted roots that are not ready to be planted are usually green, which indicates that the roots are still easy.

If the roots are deemed ripe then the branch cut can be done. Try not to cut too far from the grafting point. After that, planting the grafted tree in the shade. At this stage you still have to carry out regular maintenance until the roots are completely sturdy.
