In order to standardize the propagation technique in mango cv. Amrapali a study was conducted in the nursery site of Department of Horticulture, Khalsa College, Amritsar during the year 2018-2019. The treatments were laid out in factorial arrangement using Randomized Block Design with three replications. The results of the study revealed that both the main and the interaction effects of grafting time with grafting technique had a significant influence on days to bud sprout, scion diameter, scion length, number of leaves per graft and graft success of mango. The minimum required days (9.20) for bud break were observed when mango was grafted with cleft grafting technique during 15thAugust grafting time. The maximum success rate of grafting (84.2%) was obtained from treatment combination of 15thAugust with cleft grafting technique. Therefore, propagation of mango using cleft grafting technique during the month of August can be practiced for the study area and areas with similar agro-ecological conditions to increase the success rate of mango. Through similar researches suitable mango propagation techniques can be assessed to improve mango production globally.
