  Nodal segments of six promising strains of jojoba i.e., PKJ-1 to PKJ-6 were cultured in vitro on solidified MS medium supplemented with BA and Kinetin, alone or in combinations at different concentrations to initiate shoot growth. Different growth parameters regarding shoot initiation and growth were recorded during the experimental period of three months. The study revealed that BA (alone) was better than Kinetin (alone) or BA + Kinetin combinations. The lowest concentration of BA (1.25 mg L-1) proved more effective for many shoot parameters and PKJ-3 strain was the most responsive to cytokinins alone or in combination. Some explants also developed callus at the highest level (5.0 mg L-1) of BA (alone) or in combinations of BA with Kinetin. Many explants were vitrified at the highest level (5.0 mg L-1) of Kinetin (alone).

  Jojoba Simmondsia chinensis (Link) Schneider is a dioecious, perennial, evergreen woody shrub. The seed of Jojoba contains 40 to 50% oil which has wide uses in cosmetic, lubricant, pharmaceutical, plastic, printing and other industries. The present research investigations revealed that average temperature from 28.80 to 37.76°C gave 62.22 to 78.88% germination of Jojoba seed. Average maximum plant height 113.59 cm followed by 101.96 cm was recorded on silt + clay and Cholistani sand respectively. The plants gained 102.42, 94.19, 81.66 and 57.16 cm height with brackish water concentrations 1000, 4000, 6000 and 8000 ppm, respectively. Increasing salinity level reduced the growth of Jojoba.
