EFFECT OF DIAMETERS AND LENGHS IN INCREASING ROOTING RATIO AND IMPROVING VEGETATIVE GROWTH CHARACTERISTICS OF POMEGRANATE CV. MAHLI

Abstract

The research was carried out in the plastic house and the lath house of the Department of Horticulture and landscape to study the effect of three diameters of the cutting (6, 8 and 10) mm and three lengths of the cutting (one bud, two buds and three buds) in the rooting ratio of the cutting and the vegetative growth characteristics of the cutting wood pomegranate seedless. The complete random design with two factors and three replicates The results showed that the diameter of the was significant, especially the diameter (10 mm) in (percentage of root cutting, number of branches, average length of branches and number of leaves) and reached 93.333%, 5.33 (branch. Seedlings-1), 57.55 cm and 86.333. (Seedlings-1), respectively, and the length of the cutting has a significant effect on some of the qualities Vegetative growth studied especially (the length of the branch and the number of leaves) amounted to 50 cm and 79.333( leaf. Plant-1) respectively.
