Effect of auxins and alginate encapsulation on in vitro rooting of Sorbus domestica
Abstract:The effect of using different approaches for in vitro rooting of service tree (S. domestica L.) was tested. When applied conventionally, the type of auxin used significantly affected frequency of rooting, with highest values being obtained after using strong IAA concentrations (27.2 – 54.4 M). Both the frequency and intensity of callogenesis at the basal part of the microcuttings were positively correlated with auxin concentration. The preliminary diptreatment in concentrated IBA solution induced rooting accompanied by limited frequency of callus formation. The relationship between exposure time of auxin treatment and rooting followed a hyperbolic curve, with an optimal exposure of 80 s. The dynamics of rooting showed different patterns depending on the auxin used. Encapsulated microcuttings successfully rooted with a frequency comparable to that of the non-encapsulated ones.
