Abstract: An experiment was conducted to study the response of IBA and rooting media on rooting of cutting in chrysanthemum cv. Piwali Rewadi during the kharif season 2012-13 at Horticulture Section, College of Agriculture, Nagpur. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Completely Randomized Design with four main factor ( 500 ppm IBA, 750 ppm IBA, 1000 ppm IBA and control and four sub-factor (Sand, Sand + FYM (2: 1), Sand + Silt + FYM (2: 1: 1) and Sand + Silt + FYM (1: 1: 1). Results of the investigation showed that days to rooting, fresh weight of roots, dry weight of roots, days to sprouting, fresh weight of shoots and dry weight of shoots were found to be higher in treatment application of IBA 1000 ppm. In case of rooting media it is higher in sand + FYM (2: 1) and minimum days required to rooting and days to sprouting is in Sand + Silt + FYM (1: 1: 1).
