Immature embryo culture response of 28 durum wheat (Triticum turgidum var. durum) cultivars was studied using MS medium in Tissue Culture Laboratory of College of Agriculture, Isfahan University of Technology. Donor plants were grown in a recirculating hydroponic system and pots in a greenhouse. Regenerated immature embryos were recorded at 2, 4, 8 and 16 days after inoculation. Assessment of durum wheat cultivars for immature embryo culture was conducted by percentage and rate of regenerated embryo, using a split plot design arranged in completely randomized design with 5 replications. The analysis of variances showed that there were highly significant differences among cultivars for plant regeneration capacity. The highest potential and rate of embryo regeneration (two days after inoculation) were observed in “Shahivandi” which is a native cultivar of west Iran. “Awl1/Sbl4” with a mean of 48.5%, “Hagla” and “Ofen/Kil” with a mean of 80% have the poorest and the best mean of regeneration during the recording period, respectively. The high regeneration potential is important in view of reducing the time constrain and somaclonal variation in a breeding program.
