Abstract:

An investigation entitled “Effect of etiolation, wrapping materials and media on rooting and survival in air layering of guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv. Allahabad Safeda” was conducted at Horticultural Research Farm, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand during the year Kharif – 2017, to find out suitable combination of treatments for rooting and survival of air layers without using rooting hormones in guava. The result revealed that survival of rooted layers and root characters of air layers of guava have been successfully achieved by the etiolation. Regarding the wrapping materials, in black polythene (200 guage) gave the high survival rooted air layers and root characters at detachment (45 days), 30 and 60 days after shifting in poly bags. Among the rooting media, moist sphagnum moss found to be best and produced highest survival and root characters. The survival of rooted air layers root characters viz., number of primary and secondary roots, fresh and dry weight of roots at detachment (45 days from mother plants) was found to be maximum with the treatment combination of etiolation and sphagnum moss.
