Abstract: The experiment entitled with “Effect of different months on air layering in pomegranate cv. Bhagwa”. With the objectives to study the effect of different months on rooting and survival of air layers in pomegranate and to find out the retention of appropriate month for higher success in pomegranate. The data obtained were analyzed using FRBD model with four treatment i.e. time of air layering operation viz., M1 July, M2 August, M3 September and M4 October months which were replicated four times.
The pomegranate propagation significantly influenced by different time i.e. months of layering operation in treatment M1 i.e. July month was found significantly superior over all the other treatments for early root initiation (21.85 days), rooting percentage (71.50 %), length of primary root (11.91cm), length of secondary root (2.37cm), fresh weight of root (1.91gm), dry weight of root (0.54gm), number of leaves (42.63) and survival percentage is (75.06 %). However, number of primary root (21.88), number of secondary root (37.96) root volume (3.81cm3) and height of rooted air layered (27.43cm) is maximum in treatment M2 i.e. August month in pomegranate. Whereas, the results regarding fresh weight of shoot and dry weight of shoot were found to be non- significant.
