Rooting Response of Hardwood Cuttings of MM111 Apple Clonal Rootstock to Indolebutyric Acid and Rooting Media

S. Rahimi Dvin, E. Ganji Moghadam and M. Kiani

Abstract:
This study was conducted with the main purpose of determining the most suitable Indolebutyric acid (IBA) concentrations and rooting media for MM111 hardwood cuttings. Treatments comprised of four concentrations of IBA (0, 1500, 2500 and 3500 mg L-1) as quick dip (10 sec) and three rooting media (cocopeat, perlite, cocopeat+perlite 1:1 by volume). Twenty centimeter-long cuttings were prepared and treated with a commercial fungicide, Captan, by being dipped in a liquid solution for 5 sec. This experiment had a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with factorial arrangement in three replications. The highest rooting percentage (37.03%) was obtained in the concentration of 2500 mg L-1 IBA and cocopeat+perlite medium. Also the greatest root number (11.33) was acquired in the concentration of 2500 mg L-1 IBA and cocopeat+perlite medium. But the highest root length (9.83 cm) was attained in 1500 mg L-1 IBA and cocopeat+perlite medium.
