The propagation of plants has long been recognized as a fundamental practice in the field of plant science. Various special treatments are followed in the production of horticultural plants, and for this reason their propagation presents certain problems and difficulties not encountered in other lines of work. This book has been prepared primarily as a text for horticulture and related courses. The essential features of plant structure and reproduction have been introduced in their relation to seed production, root formation, wound healing, and other practical phases of plant propagation. The methods of asexual propagation, including bulbs, layerage, cuttage, budding, and grafting are considered in comprehensive form. Practices followed in the propagation of certain important species are presented in detail. A discussion of certain plant diseases, and transplanting, is also included because of the relationship of these to the growth and longevity of plants. Basic factors of plant growth and response are considered with respect to their relationship to commercial practices. The material included in this work is considered to be of fundamental value to students in agriculture; it is regarded as being especially useful to students in succeeding courses in vegetable crops, fruit growing, forestry, floriculture, and ornamentals.Printed Pages: 323 with figures and indexes. 037298
