Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Standardization of propagation protocol in some important medicinal and aromatic plants (Cydonia oblonga, Lavendula officinalis and Zizyphus vulgaris) of Kashmir Himalayas” comprised of three experiments. In experiment No. 1, three concentrations each of NAA and IBA (1000, 2000, 3000 ppm) and commercial rooting powder (rootex) were tried for Lavendula officinalis L. Maximum rhizogenesis was achieved with IBA, followed by NAA and rootex applications. IBA applied at 3000 ppm resulted in early leaf emergence (12.33days), maximum leaf number (28.00 per cutting), maximum callusing percentage (86.66), early root emergence (21.66 days), maximum rooting percentage (86.66), maximum root number (7.00) and length (10.30 cm) as well as maximum field survival (93.33%). In experiment No. 2, the semi-hardwood cuttings of Cydonia oblonga Mill.; were treated with three concentrations (1000, 2500 and 5000 ppm) each of NAA and IBA and also with rootex. IBA showed relatively better results for qualitative and quantitative traits. Early leaf emergence (13.66 days), maximum leaf number (15.00per cutting), maximum callusing percentage (83.33), earlier rooting (44.66 days), maximum rooting percentage (80.00), maximum root number (8.66) and length (10.23 cm) and maximum field survival (86.66%) were observed in cuttings treated with IBA at 5000 ppm. Rootex was less effective than other treatments excluding control. In experiment No. 3, three concentrations each of NAA and IBA (2500, 5000 and 7500 ppm) and rootex were tried for Zizyphus vulgaris Lam. Maximum rhizogenesis was achieved with IBA followed by NAA and rootex. IBA at 7500 ppm induced early leaf emergence (39.66 days), maximum leaf number (30.33 per cutting), maximum callusing percentage (23.33) ,early rooting (60.00days), maximum rooting percentage (20.00), maximum root number (8.00) and length (7.40cm), maximum field survival (33.33%). An overview of investigation revealed that efficient rhizogenesis was achieved by, IBA at 3000 ppm in Lavendula officinalis L..; IBA at 5000 ppm in Cydonia oblonga Mill and IBA at 7500 ppm in Zizyphus vulgaris Lam.
