Editorial Note on Layering


Zahoor Mohammad*

Layering has advanced as a typical methods for vegetative spread of various species in regular habitats. Layering is likewise used by horticulturists to engender advantageous plants. Normal layering regularly happens when a branch contacts the ground, whereupon it produces extrinsic roots. At a later stage the association with the parent plant is cut off and another plant is created therefore. The plant layering measure ordinarily includes injuring the objective locale to uncover the inward stem and alternatively applying establishing compounds. In ground layering or basic layering, the stem is twisted down and the objective district is covered in the dirt. This is done in plant nurseries in impersonation of normal layering by numerous plants, for example, thorns which bow over and contact the tip on the ground, so, all things considered it develops roots and, when isolated, can proceed as a different plant. Regardless, the establishing cycle may take from half a month to a year.
