The present experiment entitled Effects of biofertilizers and vermicompost on rooting of pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) cuttings was conducted at nursery, Horticulture Farm, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.), during the period of 2018-19.The present experiment was conducted to study the effect of diffetent biofertilizers, vermicompost and water as control (viz, control, PSB, Azotobactor, Azospirillum, Vermicompost @ 5% of rooting media) with three replication in a complete randomized design (CRD), under shade net condition. The study revealed that significant differences were existed among the treatments for different rooting and shooting parameters. Among the different treatments the earliest sprouting of cutting as well as significantly highest percentage of success, number of leaves per shoot, length of root, diameter of root, fresh weight of roots, and number of roots per cutting were observed in PSB @ 5% rooting media followed by Azotobactor @ 5% rooting media. However the performance of cutting in treatment control was inferior.
