Cashew tree is an industrial plant that can grow on marginal land in a dry climate. Many farmers need seeds with fast age production and good quality. Thus, the improvement of seed plants uses grafting by cutting the scion of cashew tree whose the productivity remains high and graft them with cashew rootstock. The study aims to determine the effect of the entrees length of the scion, the effect of light intensity, and the results of the interaction of the entrees length within the light intensity on the success of cashew grafting. The research was conducted on July-October 2020 in the experimental land of Faculty of Agriculture, Universitas Sebelas Maret. The research method was a split-plot research design with 2 factors, the size of entrees length are 5cm, 7,5 cm, 10cm and light intensity is 100%, 20-30%, 10-20% under the shade of paranet with 9 combination and 3 replications of treatments. The results showed that the interaction within the treatment entrees length 7,5cm and 100% light intensity was successful. The other treatment of entrees length and light intensity had no effect or failed.
