Abstract

This research work was design to investigate the influence of different treatments of Indole Butyric Acid (IBA) on the cuttings of avocado. Cuttings of avocado were transplanted from the sand beds to the plastic bags after a year with mixture of soil garden, farmyard manure, and silt of equal proportion. The study was conducted in green house at University of Poonch Rawalakot, during 2017. The experiment was allocated within three replications, and each replication contained 25 cuttings under a completely randomized design with four treatments control, 4000 ppm, 5000 ppm and 6000 ppm. There were different varieties of Fuerte , Cylone purple , Bunched fruit  contained cuttings of each replication. Analysis of the data for parameters (Number of roots per plant, Root length, Number of leaves, Shoot length, Shoot diameter, Root diameter, and Survival percentage) was performed according to CRD (Statistic 8.1). The present results exhibited that Feurete avocado variety performed better at 6000 ppm concentration of IBA in terms of survival percentage, high root and shoot growth.
