Abstract

The effect of different growing media and various concentrations of IAA, IBA and NAA on the rooting and shooting of softwood cutting of Terminalia bellerica were investigated in the Research field of Chauras Campus of H.N.B. Garhwal Central University (Uttarakhand), India. For preparing the rooting media Vermiculite, Vermiculite + Sand (1:1) and Garden Soil were mixed thoroughly. Properly prepared cuttings of about 9-10 cm length in the month of May were treated with different concentrations of IAA, IBA and NAA viz., 100, 500, 1000 ppm and control in liquid hormonal solution and powdery hormonal treatment. The cuttings treated with IBA 500 ppm and IBA 1000 ppm, performed the best in all aspects, as rooting percentage and shooting percentage and also the overall growth rate of rooting and sprouting was found good in liquid hormonal solution as compared to powdery hormonal treatment.
