Sample text

By micropropagation based on organogenesis, this rate is of 3 every 2 months; more than half million shoots can be obtained within 2 years from only one proliferating explant. But, it is important to note that the very low potential of propagation with offshoots can be considered quite sufficient as demonstrated by the two following examples. First, California planters continue to use offshoots for the renewal of their plantation even though it was in California, in 1979, where the first propagation of date palm by somatic embryogenesis from offshoots was achieved (Tisserat 1979).

5 Conclusion It is clear that tissue culture multiplication technique can be a very efficient tool for the development of the date palm culture in defined cases: to reconstitute the groves destroyed by bayoud disease by planting resistant and high fruit quality cultivars, to improve the quality of the date fruit production with elite cultivars, to extend the date culture into new areas with adapted cultivars and to facilitate safe germplasm exchanges. One of the main technological factors limiting the use of this technique is the production of abnormal plants, when plantlets are obtained by somatic embryogenesis.

Furthermore, 50% of the seedlings may turn out to be males. Also, date fruits from seedling plants are often smaller and of poorer quality. The common means of propagation is by transplanting suckers or offshoots when they are 3–5 years old. Plants grown from offshoots will fruit 2–3 years earlier than seedling plants. However, offshoots develop slowly and the numbers produced per tree are limited. Also, they are produced only during the early years of life of the mother palm. Offshoots will not survive in the field unless they are large enough.
