Abstract: Present study was aimed at determining the best combination of growing media to enhance rooting of olive cuttings. Different combinations of growth media, garden soil, sand, Farm yard manure (FYM) and peat moss were studied with three cultivars of olive i.e., Leccino, Coratina and Frontoio, to select the best propagation media for growth of olive cuttings. The results of the study demonstrated that propagation media with combinations of all the selected media, i.e., Garden Soil, Sand, FYM and Peat moss, was the best in terms of survival, rooting and shooting of cuttings. This media has shown the best results in Coratina variety, which shows that growth media influences the survival, shooting, rooting and other growth characteristics of an olive plant.
