Topworked With Seedless Atis (Agri Tip 21)


IF YOU have a non-performing or inferior atis tree, you can improve it by topworking. This means changing the crown with a desirable variety. Just like this atis tree in photo at the Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal. Because the fruits of the original tree were of poor quality, the main branches were cut off. 

New branches were allowed to grow and when the branches were the size of the small finger, scions from a seedless atis were grafted. Today, about six months later, the new crown is now well established. In fact, some of the branches are bearing some flowers. To maintain the new crown, remove any new growth from the rootstock.
