Abstract:
This research was conducted to Effect of Auxins and Rooting Media on Rooting in Stem Cutting of Mulberry (Morus nigra L.) at Horticultural Research Centre, Chauras Campus. H.N.B. Garhwal University Srinagar, Garhwal Uttarakhand, India. Stem cuttings of the plant were subjected to different treatments; IBA concentration (1000ppm, 2000ppm and 0ppm) and rooting media (Sand+FYM, Vermicompost and Cocopeat). The experiment was laid out in Factorial randomized block design and replicated thrice. In case of IBA concentration, the maximum number of sprouted cutting (7.11), average number of sprouts per cutting (5.77), length of longest sprout (8.90 cm), diameter of thickest sprout (0.71 cm), number of leaves on new shoots (8.55), survival percentage (71.11 %), rooting percentage (70.00), number of primary root (10.77), length of longest root (10.22 cm) was recorded under 2000ppm concentration of IBA. In case of rooting media, the maximum number of sprouted cutting (7.11), diameter of thickest sprout (0.54 cm), number of leaves on new shoots (8.11), survival percentage (71.11%), rooting percentage (70.00), number of primary root (8.55), length of longest root (9.11cm) was observed under vermicompost rooting media.
