Abstract: The objective of the current review is to review and identify the research on the effect of IBA, NAA and their combination effect on shooting and root growth of ornamental crops specially African marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cuttings. Factors affecting rooting of ornamental crops cuttings can be internal or external factors. Internal factors affecting rooting of cuttings include the amount of stored food in cuttings, the age and maturity of tissue, the formation of callus and adventitious roots and the presence of leaves and buds on cuttings. The external factors include rooting media, chemical and hormone treatments, light, temperature, mechanical treatment and mist spray. IBA, NAA is one of the most important factors for cutting production. Types of rooting hormone have significantly influenced the rooting and vegetative growth of cuttings. The concentration of rooting hormone depends on the species, type of cuttings, growing conditions, season of the year and the cost effectiveness of the rooting hormone components. Choosing the most suitable concentration of rooting hormone for the achievement of a successful plant production is very important which is significantly helpful for the farmers for off season production of ornamental crops through cuttings

TL;DR: The result revealed that growth regulators IBA and NAA had significantly effect on shooting performance of African marigold.
Abstract: The experiment was carried out in completely randomized design with three replications and the cuttings were planted on protray and placed at mist chamber and consist of three different concentrations of IBA (100, 200 and 300 ppm), NAA (100, 200 and 300ppm) and IBA+NAA (100+100, 200+200 and 300+300 ppm) along with control were treated for shooting in stem cuttings of marigold under Chhattisgarh plain region. The result revealed that growth regulators IBA and NAA had significantly effect on shooting performance of African marigold. The number of sprouts per cutting (7.55), average length of shoot (8.00 cm), number of leaves per cutting (163.44), fresh weight (1140.55 mg) and dry weight of shoot (159.00 mg) were recorded maximum in NAA 200 ppm at 35 days after planting of cuttings.

TL;DR: In this article, the effect of IBA and NAA and their combination on rooting in stem cuttings of African Marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cv. was conducted in the Horticultural Research cum Instructional Farm at Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalya, Raipur (C. G.), season 2017.
Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Effect of IBA and NAA and their combination on rooting in stem cuttings of African Marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) cv. Pusa Narangi Gainda” was conducted in the Horticultural Research cum Instructional Farm at Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalya, Raipur (C. G.), season 2017. The experiment consisted of three different concentrations of IBA (100, 200 and 300 ppm), NAA (100, 200 and 300ppm) and IBA+NAA (100+100, 200+200 and 300+300 ppm) along with control which were treated for root initiation in stem cutting of marigold under Chhattisgarh plain region. The experiment was laid out in a Completely Randomized Design with three replications and the cuttings were planted on protray and placed in mist chamber. The result revealed that growth regulators IBA and NAA had significantly effect on rooting and shooting performance of marigold. The maximum survival percentage (88.33%) of rooted cuttings were recorded under 200 ppm IBA and 300 ppm IBA at 35 days after planting of cuttings. While the number of sprouts per cutting (7.55), average length of shoot (8.00 cm), number of leaves per cutting (163.44), fresh weight (1140.55 mg) and dry weight of shoot (159.00 mg) were recorded maximum in NAA 200 ppm at 35 days after planting of cuttings and the number of roots (93.44), fresh weight (404 mg) and dry weight of root (34.11 mg) were recorded maximum under 300 ppm IBA whereas, average length of roots (12.23 cm) were observed maximum under IBA 100 ppm.

TL;DR: An application of 3000 ppm IBA proved better than all other treatments to increase various attributes related to the growth of shoot as well as root of Bougainvillea cuttings.
Abstract: Three different concentrations of IBA (1000, 2000 and 3000 ppm) and NAA (1000, 2000 and 3000 ppm) each along with control (Distilled water treatment) were used for dipping cuttings of Bougainvillea to observe the effect of above mentioned plant growth regulators on the rooting during rainy season under Chhattisgarh region. The study was conducted during Kharif 1998 under Randomized Block Design. The experiment was laid out in the Horticulture Nursery at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Agriculture University, Raipur (M.P.). Hardwood cuttings of Bougainvillea, cv. 'Refulgens' were treated with IBA and NAA as per. treatments (1000, 2000 and 3000 ppm) for 2 minutes. Observations on shoot as well as root growth were noted at 30 and 45 days after planting of cuttings. Both the growth regulators promoted rooting, however, the response varied between the growth regulators as well as among their various concentrations used. 3000 ppm IBA stimulated maximum percentage of sprouting, rooting, root growth and development. This treatment also produced higher length of longest shoot, number of leaves per cutting, dry weight of shoots and fresh weight of shoots and roots per cutting. An application of 3000 ppm IBA proved better than all other treatments to increase various attributes related to the growth of shoot as well as root of Bougainvillea cuttings. (Dr. D.A.
