Title: Protocol for synthetic seeds production in nabq (Ziziphus spina-christi L)
Biography: Doaa Shehata Elazab
This current study investigated the influence of medium type and Indole Acetic Acid (IAA) concentration on artificial seed germination and growth in Zizyphus Spina-Christie (Napq tree), four types of media ((Murashigi and Skoog, Nitsch and Nitsch, Woody and Gamborg) and five concentrations of IAA (0.0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 mg/l) were used. Data indicated that, IAA at 0.1 mg/l was found to be the best concentration to germinate the synthetic seeds by 86.67% germination; the second best one was 0.5 mg/l with 3.33% germination. MS medium was the best medium in shoot height (cm), leaves and nodes number and leaves dimensions (cm) compared to NN, WPM and B5 media. On the other hand, MS medium supplemented with 0.1 mg/L IAA were the best in germination and vegetative characteristics in synthetic seeds of Hozaien nabq.
