Effect of plant growth regulators and cutting type on rooting potential of fig (Ficus carica L.) stem cuttings

Author(s):
Navjot Kaur and Amarjeet Kaur
Abstract:
Fig (Ficus carica L.) is one of the oldest cultivated plants which are raised through vegetative propagation which provides a means to obtain true to type plants. Propagation through cuttings is an important technique for the mass production of plants. The effectiveness of cutting type and the cutting treatment with an adequate concentration of growth regulators is a need for the production of superior quality germplasm. Therefore a study aimed at application of growth regulators and different cutting types was conducted. It consists of three concentrations of two growth regulators IBA (1000, 2000 and 3000 ppm) and PHB (500, 750 and 1000 ppm) applied to basal, middle and tip cuttings to appraise sprouting, rooting and vegetative traits. The study revealed that the basal cuttings resulted in an increase in sprouting, rooting and vegetative characters with maximum survivability. Among the growth regulators IBA@ 3000 ppm sprouted earlier with maximum percentage, rooted better and had vigorous growth than other treatments. The present research findings may facilitate the clonal propagation of fig fruit tree for quality production of planting material.
