Abstract: The experiment entitled with Response of number of air layers per shoot in pomegranate cv. Bhagwa. With the objectives to study the effect of number of air layers per shoot and to find out the retention of appropriate number of layers per shoot for higher success in pomegranate The data obtained were analyzed using FRBD model with four treatment i.e. number of air layers per shoot viz., L1 two layer per shoot, L2 four layer per shoot, L3 six layer per shoot and L4 eight layer per shoot with four replication.
The pomegranate propagation significantly influenced by number of air layers per shoot in treatment L1 i.e. two layer per shoot significantly showed better response for early root initiation (22.54 days), rooting percentage (70.44%), length of primary root (12.00cm), length of secondary root (2.36cm), fresh weight of root (2.04g), dry weight of root (0.59g) and number of leaves (42.00). However, number of primary roots (22.32), number of secondary roots (37.79), root volume (4.04cm3), heights of rooted air layered (27.41cm) and survival percentage (77.13%) was maximum in treatment L2 i.e four layer per shoot. Whereas, the results regarding fresh and dry weight of shoot were found to be non- significant.
