Abstract The present research was carried out to study the effect of growth regulators viz. IBA, IAA and NAA on vegetative propagation of black pepper (Piper nigrum L.) cv. Panniyur-1 through different node cuttings during July, 2014 to October, 2014 at Regional Horticulture Research Station, ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari. The experiment included twelve treatments in Factorial Complete Randomized Design (FCRD) having three repetitions comprising IBA, IAA and IBA+NAA combinations each @ 250 and 500 mgl-1 along with control. Twenty different node cuttings of each treatment under each repetition were planted. The planting media was the combination of sand, soil and vermicompost in 2:1:1 ratio. The cuttings were dipped for three minutes in solution of IBA, IAA and NAA+IBA combinations. ii ii Among the various concentrations of IBA, IAA and NAA+ IBA combinations, NAA 250 mgl-1+IBA 250 mgl-1 proved to be the best treatment for initiation and growth of shoot and root viz., days taken to first sprouting (9.43 days), number of shoots per cutting (7.13), number of leaves per shoot (12.43), average length of shoot (23.10 cm), average diameter of the shoot (0.45 cm), rooting percentage (77.50), number of primary roots per cutting (11.76), average length of primary root (12.56 cm), number of secondary roots (8.63) and length of secondary root (6.06 cm) per cutting. It is concluded that IBA 250 mgl-1 + NAA 250 mgl-1 with two node cutting combination was the most effective treatment in all respect of shoot and root growth characters of black pepper cv. Panniyur-1 under South Gujarat conditions. IBA 500 mgl-1 with two node cutting also proved better in the present study.
