Strawberries-shutterstockThis work presents the production technology of the strawberry cultivar ‘Idea’ by micropropagation. Meristems of 0.5mm size were isolated in June from the stolons of examined strawberry sorts. They were raised on Murashige and Skoog’s (Murashige and Skoog, 1962) medium in presence of 6-Benzylaminopurine (BAP), Indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) and gibberellic acid (GA3). Fifty days later meristems were organized into a foliate rosette. Multiplication was achieved on Murashige and Skoog’s substratum with BAP and IBA. The plants which came to the size of about 10mm were shifted to the substratum for tree rooting. Tree rooting was achieved on Murashige and Skoog’s substratum with IBA. Sixty days later the plants with strongly developed roots were transplanted into the peaty briquettes. One month later the plants were transplanted into flowerpots and kept in a greenhouse at a temperature of 10-150C.
