    Micrografting was developed in 1980s and consists of the placement in aseptic conditions of a maintained scion onto an in vitro grown rootstock. The results of in vitro micrografting and the plant material derived from it can be further multiplied in tissue culture conditions or acclimatized to outdoor conditions. Micrografting is a technique that potentially can combine the advantages of rapid in vitro multiplication with increased productivity that results from grafting, superior rootstock and scion combinations. Among various methods of micrografting, slit or wedge grafting has been found most suitable in case of fruit crops. In vitro shoot tips are better as compared to in vivo shoot tips for carrying out micrografting resulting in higher graft success, less contamination, less vitrification, lower shoot tip necrosis and good vigour of ..
