Micropropagation of sweet cherry rootstocks
Languages of publication
The sweet cherry rootstocks Gisela 5, Weiroot 10, Damil, Edabriz, Maxma, PHL 84 were propagated and rooted by tissue culture. The micropropagation was carried out on MS medium (Murashige and Skoog, 7) with modification. Medium A ? full strength MS with addition of 0,5 mg/l BA and 0,1 mg/l IBA, medium B ?half strength of MS nitro-elements with addition of 2,0 mg/l BA and 0,1 mg/l IBA. Two-steps rooting was carried out on WPM medium (Lloyd and McCown, 8), induction of roots on WPM medium with addition of 2,0 mg/l IBA and 5,0 mg/l IAA, after 9-10 days shoots were transferred onto WPM medium without hormones. The highest multiplication coefficient was obtained for Weiroot 10. Gisela 5 was proved to be the most susceptible to vitrification. The best rooting was calculated for Gisela 5-94,7%, at mean length of root ? 3,2 cm.
