Abstract: Studies on seed germination, rootstocks and budding aspects of ber were conducted to standardize the propagation techniques. Extracted kernels germinated better with higher percentage as compared to intact seeds. Kernels presoaked in water then treated with 1.0% thiourea gave 77.77% germination in Umran. The germination process of ber was slower in the dark. GA as presowing treatment substituted the light requirements of seeds. It was found that the germination percentage of seeds was significantly higher when the final exposure was given to red light. It was also found that better and faster germination occurred at 30 ºC. Further it was revealed that ber seeds could be stored up to 8 months without any loss in viability. Based on the studies conducted, it is recommended that KNO3 treatment be given to the ber rootstocks in situ under dryland conditions, to make them more tolerant to drought. Urman is best suited for raising rootstocks, as the seedlings of this variety made a faster growth than the local types. When budding was done on topped defoliated rootstocks, the bud take was earlier, the success higher and the scion growth faster when compared to intact plants. Buds taken from main axis and four month old shoots were found to give higher success.
