Abstract:
Two factors of different rooting medium i.e. SOIL + FYM, with ratio of 1:1, 1:2 and 2:1 with three different IBA concentration i.e. untreated IBA, 1500 ppm, 3000 ppm, 4500 ppm and 6000 ppm were tried to investigate their effects on Rooting of Cuttings in Persimmon (Diospyros kaki L.) cv. Fuyu, in polyhouse condition at Fruit Nursery, Department of Fruit science, VCSG Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, India. The results showed significant effects on number of days taken for sprouting, number of sprout per cutting, shoot length (cm), shoot diameter (mm), number of leaves, leaf area (cm2), length of longest root, percent of rooted cuttings, percent survival cuttings and cost benefit (C:B) ratio. Minimum number of days taken to sprouting (8.07 days) was recorded on and maximum number of sprout (7.57), length of shoot (11.27 cm), diameter of sprout (4.85 mm), number of leaves (11.80), leaf area (8.86 cm2), rooted cutting (61.10 %), survival cutting (64.40%), length of root (8.00 cm) and cost benefit (C:B) ratio (1:1.37) were recorded on 1:2 soil and FYM + 6000 ppm IBA. 1: 2 soil and FYM showed significant results among most of the parameters observed. Hence for better cutting success of Persimmon (Diospyros kaki L.) cv. Fuyu in 1:2 soil + FYM with 6000 ppm IBA is recommended.
