Studies on Rooting of Azayesh Apple Cutting Using Indolebutyric Acid and Media

Sama Rahimi Dvin, Ebrahim Ganji Moghadam, Elyas Neyestani and Ali Mokhtarian

Abstract:
This study was conducted with the main purpose of determining the most suitable Indolebutyric acid (IBA) concentrations and rooting media for Azayesh hardwood cuttings. Azayesh apple is a dwarf rootstock. In this study, the influence of IBA concentration and rooting media on the rooting of Azayesh hardwood cuttings was examined. Four concentrations of IBA (0, 1500, 2500 and 3500 mg L-1) and three rooting media (cocopeat, perlite, cocopeat+perlite 1:1 by volume) in a factorial design were applied to cuttings. The best rooting was achieved by 2500 mg L-1 concentration and cocopeat+perlite medium and the lowest by control IBA concentration and cocopeat medium. Based on the present study results, IBA concentration with 2500 mg L-1 and cocopeat+perlite medium were recommended for the rooting of Azayesh apple rootstocks.
