Effect of different media and growth regulators for callus formation and organogenesis of Juniperus species.

The effect of various concentrations and types of plant growth regulators were checked to optimize the efficient media for propagation. The young shoots of Juniperexcelsa and Juniper horizontalis brought from Ziarat were cultured on MS,WPM, N6 media supplemented with different concentrations of 2, 4-Din combination with BAP. The explants were cultured in the woody plant media (WPM)containing 0.50 mg/L 2, 4-D and BAP 50mg/L. Rich solid mass of brown-green callus was produced. Large number of shoots were produced in medium containing 0.50mg/L BAP. Rooting started on the same media when plant attained height of 3cm. After the production of roots the plants were transplanted individually in small pots and kept in the close tunnel where the humidity was approximately 70 %. After acclimatization plants were shifted to green house.
