An effort carried out to find out the smaller size of cuttings for propagation ofMorus alba in Experimental area, Department of Forestry, Range Management and Wildlife, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, 2005. Different size of cuttings i.e.5 cm, 10 cm, 15 cm and 20 cm were planted in polythene tubes of 9 cm x 18 cm.
