A protocol for rapid multiplication of Grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) cv. Al-Bayadi. Grown in Taif, Saudi Arabia was developed using shoot tips and internodes segments explants excised from mature plants in filed. Explants were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium with different concentrations of BAP (6-Benzylaminopurine) (0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2 mg/l) to investigate in vitro stages shoot initiation, multiplication and elongation. Effect of different concentrations of IBA (Indole-3-butyric acid) (0.0, 0.1, 1.0 and 2 mg/l) and 0.1 mg/l of NAA (Naphthalene acetic acid) on root formation of shoots were studied. The highest percentage of shoot initiation (90%), maximum average number of multiplied shoots (3.7) and highest average number of elongated shoots (3.6) were observed on MS medium supplemented with 2 mg/l BAP. For rooting, highest percentage (100%) of rooted shoots was obtained on MS medium supplemented with 2 mg/l IBA+0.1 mg/l NAA. Plantlets with 4 to 5 roots of 3 to 5 cm length were transferred to pots containing sterile peat moss for acclimatization in greenhouse.
