Salicylic acid was employed in this study at levels (0, 50, 100, 150, 200 mg/L) in culture media for shoot development from the culture of single nodal segments, the results showed that the level (100 mg/L) was the best significantly in shoot number, leaf number, leaf area, root length and number, the significant effect of (100 mg/L) was also in total soluble protein (16.78 mg/gm) in shoots, whereas the levels (100,150, 200 mg/l) were the best significantly in chlorophyll content of the shoot leaves, the level (100 mg/L) was also affected significantly in the means of microtuber weight and number(1.094), (7.125) and total soluble protein (5.146 µg /gm) whereas the levels (100 and 150 mg/L) of salicylic acid in starch percentage (12.97, 12.99 %) were better significantly than control treatment (2.55 %).
