Different explants of Crocus sativus L. such as corm, style, ovary, petal, anther and
leaf were cultured on LS and MS media supplemented with NAA and BAP or 2,4-D
plus BAP at different combinations. Shoot and corm induction occurred in addition
to the formation of other organs. Efficient plantlet regeneration with strong roots
occurred at 1 mg 1-I of both NAA and BAP. An increase in 2,4-D level enhanced callus
formation, but suppressed shoot bud generation. Shoot and corni regeneration was
observed on other explants in addition to corms
