Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Effect of plant growth regulators and type of cuttings on propagation of Little gourd (Coccinia grandis L.)” was carried out during 2021-2022 at the College of Horticulture, Dapoli, Dr. Balasaheb Sawant Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Randomized Block Design (FRBD) with fifteen treatments and replicated thrice. In this experiment, effect of type of cuttings [basal cuttings (C1), middle cuttings (C2) and top cuttings (C3)] and plant growth regulators [250 ppm IBA (P1), 500 ppm IBA (P2), 750 ppm IBA (P3), Keradix powder (P4) and Control (P5)] on rooting and shooting parameters of little gourd cuttings were studied.
The data revealed that, the days required for sprouting, survival percentage and growth parameters of cuttings of little gourd were found to be significantly influenced by the types of cutting and different plant growth regulators. Among the interactions between types of cutting (C) and different plant growth regulators (P), it is concluded that basal cuttings treated with IBA @ 250 ppm was the most effective treatment among all treatments in all the respect of shoot parameters in little gourd under Konkan condition. The result obtained from this investigation can be used to develop a protocol for production of quality planting material of little gourd through cuttings.
