This study was carried out between 2017-2018 and goji berry (Lycium barbarum L.) varieties were propagated with cuttings. In this study, the effects of cutting take time and indole-3-butryic acid (IBA) doses on rooting, shooting, root and shoot characteristics were investigated. Cuttings collected from Damaye and NQ7 goji berry cultivars grown in Karkin Village of Aksaray Province from the year of 2015. Cuttings collected at 4 different times (August-15, October-15, December-15 and February-15) and applied with 4 different IBA doses (0, 500, 1000 and 2000 ppm). They planted in trays with perlite medium under misting and bottom heating for rooting. The study planned with three replication and 25 cuttings for each replication under randomised complate block design under greenhouse. Cuttings were mowed after two months and alive cutting rate (%), rooting rate (%), transplantation and sapling rate (%) were determined. The highest rooting rate (88.00%) obtained from Damaye cuttings taken in August and 1000 ppm IBA dose applied. Damaye cuttings rooted good than NQ7 and August is the best cutting time and 1000 ppm IBA is the best application for all investigated characteristics.
