Viewed : 764 - Downloaded : 337 In this study, the effects of different hormones on rooting of hardwood cuttings of mulberry were investigated. Having been treated hormones, the cutting were planted in perlite with bottom heat and without bottom heat. These increases were statically significiant. The effect hormones was particularly evident in bottom heat. All treatments of hormones increased rooting percentage according to control treatment. The most rooting percantages in bottom heat and without bottom heat were obtained as 89.3 % with treatment by 5000 ppm IBA and 60.4 % with treatment by 7500 ppm IBA, respectively. Moreover, in bottom hea, 7500 ppm IBA increased statically significantly the number of root per cutting according to the other treatments. Keywords :
