A master’s thesis was discussed in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Engineering/ College of Agriculture and Forestry / University of Mosul for the student (Zuhair Abdullah Abdul Rahman) on Wednesday, September 13 -2023. Thesis title (the response of three olive varieties to the dates of taking semi-woody cuttings and different concentrations of IBA on the rooting rate and subsequent growth of seedlings). Prof. Dr. Muhammad Younis Al-Allaf (Dean of the College) attended a part of the discussion.

The study included two experiments, examining 5 dates in the first experiment and 4 dates in the second experiment for taking cuttings, 3 concentrations of auxins, and three types of olives. The results of the two experiments showed that the date of taking the cuttings in March and November after treating them with a concentration of 5000 mg/L of auxins gave the best results for the characteristics of vegetative and root growth, as well as the variation in the response of the varieties to the factors studied.
