The purity of the starting material is a very important requirement in the production of fruit trees. This and the establishment of the rational system for in vitro propagation, have introduced a number of methods for micropropagation in fruit growing.
One is the somatic organogenesis. In order this process to be successful it is necessary to pay serious attention to the rooting.
In this work we present a brief overview of the worldwide experience in experimental rooting of plants obtained through somatic organogenesis from leaf explants.
