INFLUENCE OF BIOTIC AND ABIOTIC FACTORS ON IN VITRO ROOTING STAGE OF PEAR
To obtain representative experimental results for pear cultivation, it was created 12 variants designed as bifactorial experience: Genotype (A.1 Argessis, A.2 Monica, A.3 Republica) and Photoperiodism levels (B1 = 16 hour photo-periodism, for 35 days, B2 = 14 hour photoperiodism, for 35 days, B3 = 16 hour photo¬periodism after dark pre-treatment for 9 days, for 35 days, B4 = 14 hour photo¬periodism after dark pre-treatment for 9 days, for 35 days). The best results were obtained for Monica and Argessis varieties on variants V.3, V.4 and V.7 having a rooting degree of 74%. Note that on these variants rooting process took place in the dark pre-treatment with the first 9 days. Cultivar Republica which follows up the root level of between 66 to 68% was achieved under conditions of pretreatment with darkness in the first 9 days. Highest level of rooted plants (74%) was achieved in conditions of dark pretreatment in first 9 days. The results confirm that the cultivar is an important factor in rooting phase. Equally importance had for the photoperiodism phase.
