Pomegranate can be propagated by seed, air layering, grafting, shoot cuttings and tissue culture. Seed propagation is used to raise the rootstocks that can be utilized for germplasm conservation and rootstocks breeding purpose. Vegetative propagation methods are used to multiply selected genotypes that bring similar character in form of clones having similar characters to mother plant. Vegetative propagation techniques (hard wood cutting, layering) are practices to raise the saplings for commercial production in pomegranate, because it perpetuates all characteristics of each cultivar. There are various propagation techniques are available, and the refinement of those techniques are also been done in large. However, recent time the suitable propagation method especially grafting and tissue culture techniques could be useful to utilise the resistant root stocks and multiply resistant in the sapling. Although there is diversity in propagation methods and new technologies are also being experimented. Moreover, obtaining healthy and quality seedlings is still one of the main constants for commercial pomegranate growers. Use of resistant cultivars and pathogen-free substrates should be prioritized due to susceptibility of pomegranate to wilt and nematodes. Therefore, the aim of this review is to gather the data referring to advances in researchin different propagation methods that can be used to propagate pomegranate and summarize the progress obtained in recent years.
