Effect of Various Hormones and Different Rootstocks on Rose Propagation

M. Aslam Khan , Khurram Ziaf and Iftikhar Ahmad

Abstract:
A study was conducted to observe the effects of two hormones viz., Indole Butyric Acid (IBA) and Seradix-A on growth and rooting percentage of Rosa bourboniana cuttings. Experiment was laid out according to Randomized Complete Block Design and there were four treatments, replicated four times. In the second experiment two Rosa species i.e. Rosa bourboniana and Gruss an teplitz were selected as rootstocks and three hybrid tea rose cultivars, i.e. Kardinal, Gold medal and Whisky mac were budded on them to study their compatibility, growth and development. Experiment was laid out according to Randomized Complete Block Design with factorial arrangements and replicated thrice. Data were collected fortnightly on various growth and development indices. In the first experiment Seradix-A exhibited best results for different parameters of Rosa bourboniana followed by 1000 ppm of IBA and 500 ppm of IBA, respectively while control showed the minimum results which indicates positive effect of rooting hormones to increase sprouting and rooting %age. In second experiment cultivars Gold medal, Whisky mac and Kardinal showed maximum growth and flowering when budded on Gruss an teplitz as compared to Rosa bourboniana. As for as varieties are concerned, Gold medal performed better than Whisky mac and Kardinal.
