Abstract. The ability of plant cell, tissue, and organ cultures to produce and accumulate many of the same valuable chemical compounds as the parent plant in nature has been known almost since the inception of in vitro technology. Date palm has been recognized as an important crop containing high valuable secondary metabolism. Some microelements such as, manganese sulfate (MnSO42H2O), zinc sulfate (ZnSO47H2O) and copper sulfate (CuSO45H2O) were used as precursor to produce steroids from embryonic callus two date palm dry cvs. In this study, embryogenic callus explants were cultured on MS nutrient medium supplemented with different concentrations of ( MnSO42H2O), (22.3, 44.6 and 66.9 mg/l), ZnSO47H2O (8.6, 17.2 and 25.8 mg/l) and CuSO45H2O (0.025, 0.050, 0.075 mg/l). The highest significant value of total steroids ( 0.94 mg/g dry weight) was recorded when embryogenic callus of Sakkoty cv. was cultured on medium contained (22.3mg/l) MnSO42H2O. Where embryogenic callus of Bartamuda cv. cultured on nutrient medium supplemented at (17.2 mg/l) ZnSO47H2O gave the highest significant value of total steroid (0.92 mg/g dry weight).
