Abstract:

Propagation of the fig tree predominately uses hardwood cuttings obtained from pruning stock plants. With a view to optimizing fig tree propagation, the effects of different growing conditions on the rooting of hardwood cuttings from the five varieties of fig were evaluated. An experiment was set up in a two factorial design, with two growing conditions (Open and Shade house) and different varieties (Poona, Deanna, Bellary, Dinakar, Conadria), 90days after starting the experiment, rooting, root length, survival percentage were all evaluated. The interaction of the growing condition and varieties was significant for rooting, sprouting, and root length. The results of the investigation indicated that, among two of growing conditions, cuttings under open condition recorded maximum root growth, percentage of rooted cuttings, survival percentage of rooted cuttings. In respect of different varieties, cuttings of Dinakar under open condition gave maximum root growth, Deanna gave percentage of rooted cuttings, survival percentage of rooted cuttings in all varieties cuttings, thus fig can be propagated under open condition with natural tree shade.


Keywords: Varieties of fig. Growing conditions. Plant propagation.
