Selection Novelty of Azerbaijani Agriculture Ministry to obtain an authorship certification for the other roses hybridized by him.
Isgandarov said observations are underway on 500 kinds and sorts of roses at the Botanical Garden.
The scientist added that the new kinds of roses need to be displayed at regional and international flower exhibitions.
"These kinds of roses need to be taken care of in line with all agro-technical rules for them to be included into the world flower catalogues, i.e. they need a fertile soil, watering, lighting and organic and mineral fertilizers etc.," he said.
