Abstract:

Studies on the influence of bio-fertilizers and auxin on growth and rooting of pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) cuttings cvs. Bhagwa and Ruby was conducted at the department of fruit science, College of Horticulture, B during 2015-2016. The results revealed that the early sprouting of cuttings (8.60 and 7.80 days), number of cutting sprouted (18.33 and 17.67), length of longest shoot (39.73 and 41.53 cm), number of leaves (41.67 and 44.60), fresh weight of shoots (10.80 and 12.60 g), dry weight of shoots (5.80 and 6.60 g), number of primary roots (11.67 and 10.73), number of secondary roots (58.60 and 54.67), root length (27.60 and 25.80 cm), fresh weight of roots (2.56 and 2.75 g) dry weight of roots (1.62 and 1.85 g) were recorded significantly maximum value in both the cvs. Bhagwa and Ruby, respectively with application of IBA 1500 ppm + NAA 1500 ppm + Biomix in (T6). While, number of sprout (3.07), diameter of sprouts (3.16 mm), recorded maximum with treatment (T6), in cv. Ruby and maximum number of sprout (2.80), diameter of sprouts (3.07 mm) were recorded significantly higher in cv. Bhagwa with treatment IBA 1500 ppm + NAA 1500 ppm + PSB + PGPR, (T10). Whereas, all the above mentioned parameters were significantly reduced in control.
