Abstract:

Diospyros ebenum Koenig belongs to family ebenaceae and commonly known as “Kari Mara” or ebony. It is a large evergreen tree with dense crown and clear bole. The species under threat is due to illicit felling and slow germination in natural condition. To overcome the germination problem an attempt was made at College of Forestry Ponnampet to get more sprouts through air layering with different concentration of IBA. The study revealed that the concentration of IBA in air layering technique have no significant effect for initial 30days, however the rooting initiated after 30 days and has a significant differences among the concentrations of IBA. The higher percentage of rooting (4.75%) found in 1000ppm IBA.
