Abstract:
The present study was conducted to assess the effect of cutting length and diameter on shoot cuttings in Melia dubia in the nursery at Forest Research Institute, Dehradun. Hardwood stem cuttings from phenotypically superior and five years old Melia dubia trees were prepared to conducted the present experiment. Shoot cutting of four length classes i.e. 3-5 cm, 5-7.5 cm, 7.5-10 cm, 10-12 cm and four diameter classes i.e. 3-5mm, 5-7.5 mm, 7.5-10 mm, 10-12 mm were made. The experiment was laid out in mist chamber as randomised block design with three replications. Results revealed that the highest rooting percentage (76.66%) in shoot cutting was recorded in the length class 10 -12 cm and diameter class 10-12 mm where as it was least in length class 3-5 cm and diameter class 3-5 mm which may be indicating that thick and long hardwood cuttings are best for the propagation of Melia dubia under the nursery conditions.
