Abstract

Micropropagation and tissue culture techniques are the most widely adopted of the modern plant biotechnologies in developing countries. They are used in germplasm conservation, to eliminate pathogens and rapidly multiply elite planting material. Amenable crops include many of those which are traditionally propagated vegetatively; eg potato, banana, sugar-cane, cut flowers etc. The relatively high unit costs of micropropagation have restricted its application to high value horticultural, fruit and forestry species.
