Item number: MD480

Category: Rugini Olive Medium


There are variations of this item. Please select the variation you wish.

Contains the macro- and micronutrients and vitamins as described by Rugini (1984). This medium has been developed for the micropropagation of some types of olive cultivars. In comparison with MS medium, the formulation is more enriched in nutrients like Zn, Mg, Ca and S, and has the additional vitamins d-Biotin and folic acid.

Olive has a strong apical dominance. According to Rugini, satisfactory shoot growth only has been observed by using zeatin (mixed isomer can be used, but trans-Zeatin should be preferred).

Rugini mentioned the addition of Glutamine as organic nitrogen source (up to 2.16 g/l). It has been sterile filtered and added after autoclaving, therefore Glutamine is not part of this formula.
