Adventitious root formation of kiwifruit in relation to sampling date, IBA and Agrobacterium rubi inoculation

Abstract

During the winters of 2001 and 2002, the effects of three strain of Agrobacterium rubi (A1, A16 and A18), a range of IBA concentrations (0, 2000, 4000 and 6000 ppm) alone and in combination with three strains of Agrobacterium rubi and date of cutting collection on the rooting of hardwood stem cuttings of kiwifruit cv. Hayward were evaluated. Treatments of hardwood stem cuttings of kiwifruit cv. Hayward with the bacteria, IBA and IBA plus bacteria were found to promote rooting. Highest rooting percentage was obtained from cuttings treated with 4000 ppm IBA plus A18 in cv. Hayward in both years. Higher rooting percentages were observed when shoots were collected in February rather than in January.
