© 2020, ALÖKI Kft., Budapest, Hungary.Rooting performance of Salakhani, a local variety of Iraq and Zivzik (Punica granatum L.), a local pomegranate of Siirt, were compared in our study. For this purpose, the effect of different doses of indole butyric acid (IBA) (0.00, 1000, 2000, 4000, 6000 mg / L) on rooting was examined. Cuttings were kept in the rooting environment for five months and rooting rates, root number, root lengths, survival rates, shoot lengths, shoot and leaf number were determined. Salakhani were found to be the best cultivar only in terms of the root length, sprout length, shoot number and leaf number. Zivzik were found to be the best variety with regard to the other properties. IBA application of 4000 ppm was found to be the best all the shoot number, leaf number and root length. The hormone dose of 6000 ppm was found to be the most beneficial for survival and rooting rates. Application of 1000 ppm was found to be the best dose among the doses of hormone only on account of root number.
