The Chinese gooseberry or kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa) is a deciduous, dioecious fruiting vine native to south and central part of China. The kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa) is an important fruiting vine which has difficult to root in cuttings. In India, kiwifruit has shown potential for cultivation in mid-hills of Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir and North Eastern states. For commercialization of kiwifruit in Kashmir, there is increasing demand of planting material which has necessitated the need for development of an easier, quicker and economic method of propagation. To improve the rooting response of kiwifruit cuttings IBA was applied at different concentrations. IBA with increase in concentration showed good effect on rooting percentage and other parameters. Maximum rooting percentage of 56.94 was recorded when IBA was applied at 3500 ppm followed by 53.61 at IBA application of 2500 ppm. IBA at 3500 ppm increased the number of roots per cutting, number of secondary roots per cutting, average root length (cm) and other parameters with respect to control.
