Abstract:

The experiment was conducted in a polyhouse to study the effect of types of stem cuttings [shoot tip (C1), semi-hardwood (C2) and hardwood cuttings (C3)], growing media [sand (M1), soilrite (M2), soil mixture (M3) and cocopeat (M4)] and plant growth regulator [IBA-0 ppm (G0), 500 ppm (G1), 1000 ppm (G2), 1500 ppm (G3) solution and rootex powder (G4)], on rooting and shooting parameters of acid-lime (Citrus aurantifolia (Christm.) Swingle) Cv. Kagzi lime cuttings. In the present study, hardwood cuttings, cocopeat and 500 ppm IBA was better to induce more shooting and rooting parameters in acid lime cuttings. Among the interaction of treatments, the minimum days were taken to sprout was recorded in the treatment T11 (C3 Hardwood cutting + M1 Sand + G0 IBA 0 ppm) with 16.83 days. Further, T57 (C3 Hardwood cutting+ M4 Cocopeat + G1 IBA 500 ppm) gave the best response with respect percentage of sprouted cuttings (47.22 per cent), number of sprouts at 30, 60 and 90 DAP (4.6, 24.00 and 7.40, respectively), length of shoots at 90 DAP (14.59 cm), average fresh weight (13.52 g) and dry weight (10.19 g), number of primary root (11.10), length of longest root (15.47 cm) and percentage of rooted cuttings (44.44 %). The results obtained from this study can be used to develop a protocol for production of quality planting material of acid lime through cuttings.
