Abstract. The objective of the research study was to determine the effect of addition of different concentrations of three types of natural additives on Date Palm cv. Barhi: (1.25g/l, 2.5g/l, 5.0g/l for Casein Hydrolysate and 10%, 20%, 30% for (Coconut Milk and Yeast Extract), in addition to the control (0.05 BA mg/l) for shooting stage and (0.1 NAA mg/l, 3 g/l AC) for rooting stage. The results show that the use of 30% Coconut Milk achieved a high number of shoots and the highest shoot length was recorded with 10% Coconut Milk. In the date palm rooting stage, the results show that the use of 30% Coconut Milk increased the number of roots, shoot thickness and rooting percentage. However, root length was increased with 10% Coconut Milk. The lowest values were recorded with using Yeast Extract in this stage.
