Abstract

The present study was undertaken to contribute to the continuous search for efficient protocol for the macropropagation of Lannea coromandelica. It investigates the main factors involved in the macropropagation process, namely cutting type, rooting medium composition and rooting hormones at nursery conditions. Among this study identified that soft wood cutting as the ideal propagating material for mass multiplication of Lannea coromandelica genetic resources and also IBA at 3000 ppm as the optimal rooting hormone and sand and soil as the ideal potting media for clonal propagation.
