Rooting ability of wild type almond (Amygdalus turcomenica Lincz.) cuttings was investigated by tissue culture. Apical and axillary buds of shoot were used as explant material. Explants were cultured on MS mineral salt and vitamine medium supplemented with BAP (1.0 mg/L) for multiplication and the same MS medium containing 0.0, 1.0, 3.0 or 6.0 mg/L NAA, IAA or IBA for rooting. Among the auxines used, NAA, at the concentration of 1 mg/L gave the best result promoting 60% of rooting, while IBA and IAA did not give satisfactory results.
