To decrease the cost of in vitro conservation of banana cv. Karpura Chakkarakeli (AAB; Mysore subgroup) without any adverse effects on cultures, expensive components of medium such as sucrose and gelling agents, i.e. phytagel or agar (90% of the total cost of the medium), were replaced with inexpensive alternates such as market sugar and isabgol,(More)
Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum Maton) has great commercial value as a spice crop in India. A one-step protocol for direct regeneration of plants and in vitro conservation by slow growth method has been developed. A maximum of 6.5 shoots/culture were obtained in 2 mo or 15.1 shoots/culture in 4 mo on Murashige and Skoog (Physiol Plant 15:473–497, 1962)(More)
Explants used for cryopreservation of banana (Musa L. spp.) are mainly sourced from tissue culture. Here, we demonstrate the successful use of sucker meristems (SM) obtained from field-raised plants for cryopreservation of Indian Musa ABB cv. ‘Karpura Chakkarakeli’. In addition, the genetic stability of plants recovered from cryopreserved and regenerated(More)
