FACTORS INFLUENCING IN VITRO PROPAGATION OF 'MIROBOLAN DWARF' PLUM ROOTSTOCK
Improved in vitro clonally propagation is a valuable tool for the nursery propagation. Success rate for in vitro propagation of Mirobolan Dwarf plum rootstock has been analyzed. In our study the differentiation phase was influenced by culture media, comparison being within three culture media: QL, LF and MS, and explant size. The higher regeneration capacity 90% was recorded on QL culture media with explants 0.8-1 mm in size. Shoot multiplication was the best within QL culture media, when added 1.0 mg L-1 6-benzylaminopurine. Maximum rooting occurred when shoots were transferred on ½ M&S medium (100%), compared with MS medium when the rooting rate decreases (70%).
