Author: Elsheikh, Sumaya Elsheikh Mohammed
Abstract: This study was conducted at the nursery of the Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Khartoum during Autumn, Winter and Summer, 2004 – 2005. The objectives of the study were to determine rooting ability of cuttings of lime that taken were from different parts of branches at different seasons and with the application of rooting hormone (IBA).To achieve these objectives the same experiments was carried out at three seasons: Autumn, Winter and Summer. Cuttings from terminal, medium and basal parts of the branch from Citrus aurantifolia L. were prepared and planted in sand under Lathhouse 50 % shading, Indole Butyric Acid (IBA) at 0, 2000, 4000, 6000 ppm were used. Results showed that, basal cuttings were the best in number of roots, root length, number of leaves, root percentage and survival followed by medium then terminal cuttings. The highest number of roots resulted from 4000 ppm IBA followed by 6000 ppm, then 2000 ppm. The highest percentage of rooting 71.5 % was obtained from basal cuttings in autumn.
