Protocol for micropropagation of populus euphratica from leaves

Populus euphratica is a difficult to root species and therefore, difficult to propagate by cuttings. Seeds of P. euphratica are only viable for a short time. Micropropagation offers the opportunity to produce plants without limitation. We achieved the micropropagation via induction of adventitious shoots on calli of leaf explants and developed a protocol for efficient and fast rooting of the shoots including transfer of the plantlets to the greenhouse. The micropropagation protocol allows producing high numbers of vigorous plants that can be used for plantations or research.
