Survival and growth performance of stevia cutting under different growing media

Anand Singh, Prawal Pratap Singh Verma

This study was carried out to explore the survival and growth performance of stevia cutting under different growing media at CIMAP, Research Centre Purara, Uttarakhand. Results indicate that vermicompost + soil + FYM in ratio 1:1:1 had recorded highest survival of cutting (74.51 %), number of branches (12), plant height (17.14 cm), number of leaves/plant (35), fresh weight/plant (7.74 g), dry weight/plant (1.92 g), number of root/plant (20) and root length (14.34 cm). Finally concluded that growing media significantly influenced the survival rate of cutting, growth and development parameter of stevia sapling in which media vermicompost + soil + FYM was best media since the survival of cutting and development parameters were higher than those on the other media, therefore this result suggested that vermicompost + soil + FYM should be used as a growing media.
