Author(s): DB Chatse, RP Gajbhiye, DP Kedar, EP Ningot and PV Shende
Abstract: The Bougainvillea is a popular plant for landscapes because of its lovely color ful bracts and growing habit. The experiment was laid out in Factorial Completely Randomized Design with four replications with two factors viz., Factor A consist of six levels of gamma rays’ treatments i.e., control (No irradiation), 0.25 kR, 0.75 kR, 1.25 kR, 1.75 kR and 2.0 kR. Factor B consist of three varieties i.e., Shubhra (White colour flowers), Partha (Pink colour flowers) and Lady Mary Baring (Orange colour flowers). When gamma rays were applied to cuttings of different varieties, the number of roots per plant, length of the roots, fresh weight of the shoots, dry weight of the shoots and the fresh weight of the roots were all reduced. The findings additionally show that a drop in root parameter values occurred with each increment in gamma irradiation dosage.
