BASTOS, Débora Costa et al. Rooting of hardwood and herbaceous cuttings of japanese persimmon tree cultivars treated with different concentration of indolbutyric acid. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2005, vol.27, n.1, pp.182-184. ISSN 0100-2945. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452005000100049.
This work was carried out with the objective to study the capacity of rooting of hardwood and herbaceous cuttings of Japanese persimmon tree cultivars treated with IBA. Hardwood and herbaceous cuttings were collected from branches of Japanese persimmon tree and submitted to treatments in function of cultivars (Pomelo, Rama Forte, Taubaté, Giombo and Fuyu) and of application of IBA (0, 3,000 and 6,000 mg.L-1 for twenty seconds). Later the cuttings were placed in stonemason containing a soil mixture + corral manure (3:1 v/v) as substrate (hardwood cuttings) and in polyethylene trays containing vermiculite as substrate, in intermittent mist chamber (herbaceous cuttings). As conclusion is observed that the cultivars of Japanese persimmon tree present differences in relationship to potential of roots and shoots formation; herbaceous cuttings present higher tendency in the propagation through cutting in comparison with the hardwood cuttings.
