THE EFFECT OF BION® (BENZOTHIADIAZOLE) ON MULTIPLICATION AND ROOTING OF HOSTA CULTIVARS
The effect of Bion (benzothiadiazole) was studied on micropropagation of two Hosta cultivars: Dew Drop and Gold Drop. Bion is known as elicitor of Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR). In earlier experiments with in vitro culture of apple, rooting side-effect of Bion was found. The Bion caused a growth regulator-like effect during micropropagation of both Hosta cultivars. The 50 mg/L Bion caused slight raising in the propagation ratio. In the case of root differentiation the effect was significant to the control and it was observed between the cultivars as well.
