Effect of Growth Regulators on Rooting Performance of Stem Cuttings in Guava (Psidum guajava L.)

F.M. Tahir, M.A. Pervez and R. Ahmad


Potential of using Indole Butyric Acid (IBA) and paclobutrozol (PBZ) for rooting in stem cuttings of guava (Psidum guajava L.) was evaluated in a field study during the year 1995-1996. Two concentrations (500 and 750 ppm) each of IBA and PBZ were applied to three i.e. hard wood, semi-hard wood and softwood types of guava cuttings. Hard wood cuttings and IBA @ 500 ppm performed well with respect to various root and shoot developmental characteristics followed by the IBA @ 750 ppm.
