Effect of rooting media and IBA treatments on shoot and leaf production of terminal cuttings in guava (Psidium guajava L.) cv. Taiwan Pink
Author(s): T. DHATRIKARANI
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect different concentrations of Indole-3-butyric acid i.e., 250 ppm, 500 ppm, 750 ppm in solution form and 1500 ppm, 3000 ppm and 6000 ppm in powdered form planted in different rooting media i.e., coco peat, vermiculite and saw dust on terminal cuttings on guava cv. Taiwan Pink. Among the three different rooting media, coco peat showed the best response and among the six different Indole-3-butyric acid concentrations, 3000 ppm gave the highest values in all the intervals of parameters viz., number of shoots per cutting, number of leaves per cutting, leaf area per cutting and total leaf chlorophyll content.
