Helpful Hints for Cutting Propagation

Here is a relatively new publication from Dr. Tom Yeager entitled "Helpful Details for Commercial Propagation of Woody Plant Stem Cuttings."  It would be a good read for a beginning propagator or a new employee in the propagation department.  This three-page fact sheet provides information for successful propagation of woody plant stem cuttings, such as sanitation, quality of cuttings, the time of year/day to take cuttings, stem size diameter and length of cutting, location of cuts/terminal bud removal, and environmental conditions.   Here is the link to read the publication.   http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/EP/EP53600.pdf
