Exogenous indole butyric acid had a significant positive effect on the rooting response of date Palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) offshoots. IBA-treated offshoots rooted earlier and with a much higher frequency while untreated offshoots rooted poorly, later, and tended to produce fewer roots. The effect of exogenous application of auxin was also reflected in the metabolic changes in offshoots during the rooting process. Pox activity showed a minimum on the sixth day and a maximum on the twelfth day after the root-inducing treatment. Changes of IAA oxidase activity showed a parallel time curve while phenolic contents and auxin protector levels showed an inverse trend. These parameters changed slightly one week later in the untreated offshoots.
