The present experiment was conducted to study the application of different growth media for production of quality planting stock in Salix alba. Linn. during the spring season in the year 2014-15 at Research Farm of School of Forestry and Environment, SHIATS, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with seven treatments each replicate by three times including control T0- soil, T1– soil: FYM: sand (1:1:1), T2– soil: FYM: neem cake (1:1:1), T3 - soil: FYM: vermicompost (1:1:1), T4- neem cake: sand: vermicompost (1:1:1), T5- neem cake: soil: vermicompost (1:1:1) and T6- neem cake: FYM: vermicompost (1:1:1). Four Salix alba clone have taken which were PN-731, PN-224, GPB (Selection) and NZ1002 in the experiment. In view of present experiment the most effective media combination was T1 (soil: sand: FYM 1:1:1) which shows better results in sprouts, survival percentage, number of root, root length and biomass compared to control or other treatments and therefore, it can be recommended that the combination of soil: sand: FYM (1:1:1) as effective treatment for the growth of Salix alba clones.
