Key words: Sesame (Sesamumindicum L.), Callus, 2,4-D, NAA.

Abstract

Sesamumindicum L. belongs to family pedaliaceae that these family, including 60 species. Sesame is the most important oil-seed crop of semi-arid tropics and a source of high quality cooking oil and protein. In recent years, plant tissue culture techniques has become a powerful tool for the propagation of many plant species. In this research weight and diameter of callus were analyzed to determination of appropriate medium culture. dsc05966This study were performed on fall of 2013 in complete randomized design with three replicated. The MS medium culture was contain NAA and 2,4-D hormones. ANOVA statistical analysis showed significant difference at 1% level. Highest callus diameter belong to medium contain 0.2 mg/l 2,4-D and 0.12 mg/l NAA, also maximum callus weight belong to 0.2 mg/l 2,4-D and 0.16 mg/l NAA. Therefore, hormones amount which used in this research can induced callus in sesame.
