Proliferation of Juglans regia L. by in vitro embryo culture
One of the new and important ways of plant propagation is micropropagation or tissue culture technique. Using this technique is preferred due to its high propagation of plants in short periods. This research tried to find the optimal culture media for the in vitro embryo growth and proliferation of Persian walnut (Juglans regia L.). In the first stage of this study, the effects of MS, DKW, NGE, WPM culture media...
