Micropropagation of Banana

Micropropagation of Banana

The Micropropagation protocol for banana developed at BARC includes tissue culture propagation using shoot tips on a defined nutrient media containing specific plant growth regulators. The steps include establishment of shoot tip cultures, induction of multiple shoots, elongation, rooting of shoots and hardening of rooted plantlets in the green house. The technique can be useful for rapid multiplication of banana cultivars. One of the main advantages is the production of disease free uniform age and size planting material which can be made available throughout the year.
