The present study was conducted at the Horticulture Research Centre of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology during the year 2011–12. The influence of epicotyl (stone) grafting in different media on plant growth under shade conditions was studied. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with 7 treatments and five replications in two different aged seedlings. The mango stones of different unknown commercial cultivars were used for raising seedling rootstocks and Dashehari variety was used as scion. Among all the treatments the stone grafting on 10 days old seedling rootstocks resulted in highest success in terms of sprouting, survival, vegetative and root growth in comparison to grafts grafted on 13 day old seedling rootstocks. Among the growing media used in the study the soil + sawdust was found to be the best growing mixture in respect of sprouting, survival and overall performance of stone grafts over other growing mixtures.
