A study was conducted to see the effects of various positions of cutting (basal, middle and apical) and growth regulators/chemicals on rooting and sprouting of culm cuttings of bamboo (Dendrocalamus strictus Roxb.). The growth regulators/chemicals used were also evaluated for their cost effectiveness. The findings indicated that coumarin and calcium chloride gave the best response in initiating the rooting in culm cuttings compared to other auxins tested. The most optimal cutting position was found to be the basal position of culm for the best interaction with the chemicals. These two chemicals were the most cost-effective and are recommended for low cost mass production of planting stock of bamboo for large-scale plantation programmes.
