Abstract:

An experiment was carried in factorial concept with two factors i.e., varieties at two levels and rooting media at eight levels thus making 16 combinations which were replicated twice. The effect of varieties, rooting media and their interactions were found to be significant on different rooting parameters. Among the rooting media, the greatest percentage of rooted cuttings was recorded by M8 – soil:vermicompost : coco peat : saw dust (1:1:1:1) v/v + mycorrhiza. At 90 days after shifting into polybags, the number of roots per cutting, length of the longest root per cutting, fresh weight of roots per cutting, maximum survival percentage of rooted cuttings were found to be superior with the media M8 – soil : vermicompost : coco peat : saw dust (1:1:1:1) v/v + mycorrhiza whereas dry weight of roots per cutting were found to be superior with the media M6 -soil : vermicompost : coco peat : rice husk (1:1:1:1) v/v + mycorrhiza.
