Pomegranate, a fruit crop belongs to Punicaceae family, scientific name is (Punica granatum L.). Pomegranate cultivation is increasing day by day as it is grown in nearly all of India's states. Production of Pomegranate is in large quantity in India. It is propagated done by air layering, hardwood cuttings and softwood cuttings. Hardwood cutting propagation is the most effective and convenient method. Cuttings take less time than other methods of propagation. In cuttings shooting and rooting are the important factors. Auxins are used for the efficient growth of roots, IBA and NAA are widely used auxins. Growing media, in addition to PGRs, play a pivotal function in cutting growth. Different growing media like Coco-peat, Vermiculite, Perlite, Sphagnum-moss, FYM, Vermicompost and Soil. The best way to grow the cuttings at commercial level is growing them with the help of PGR’S and suitable growing media such as vermiculite and coco peat, Vermiculite with Perlite and a mixture of Coco peat with vermiculite in same quantity. The quick dip method of varying IBA concentrations and spring planting are regarded to be best for fast and cost-effective pomegranate cutting development. As a result, the primary aim of the present review is to gather/compile information on the impact of various IBA treatments on the usage of various growth media for pomegranate cuttings over the years, as well as latest studies.
