Black pepper is most important spice crop know as King of spices and Black gold. Black pepper botanically known as Piper nigrum belongs to Piperaceae family grown for its berries since the time immemorial. Now-a-days, pre-rooted cuttings from runner shoots are used in commercial level but they take a longer time to establish due to lack of roots at the nodes. From this study it is inferred that the single node cutting of black pepper treated with 2000 ppm of IBA showed the maximum number of roots and sprouts as well as maximum root length and sprout length. And also it has taken very less number of days for initiation of fifty per cent sprouts. As well as the maximum per cent survivability was observed in this treatment.
