Abstract:

Study of suitability of containers and rooting media for growth and vigour of coffee seedlings (Coffea arabica cv. Chandragiri) was conducted with an objective to evaluate the suitability of different containers for raising the seedlings and to find out most suitable media for better rooting and growth of coffee seedlings. Coffee seedlings were grown in different containers and media for a period of 6 months in nursery. It was revealed from the study that, the growth and vigour of coffee seedling is greatly influenced by different containers and media used for filling of containers. Coffee seedlings grown in root trainer containing red soil + sand + FYM + Pseudomonas fluorescens, PSB – Bacillus megaterium and Azospirillum recorded maximum leaf area (60.695 cm2), collar girth (4.01 mm), number of primary (238.6) and secondary roots (557.8) and dry weight (1.098 g) of roots at 180 days(at the time of transplanting to the main field).
