Plantlet regeneration in Prosopis laevigata (Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd.) Johnston (Fabaceae), a multipurpose tree, has been achieved from cotyledonary nodes excised from in vitro grown seedlings. The explants were cultured on MS media containing different concentrations of N-6 benzyladenine (BA) and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-d) and a mixture of organic components. The highest number (3.37 + 0.51) of multiple shoots was observed in MS media containing 2,4-d (9.05 μM) + BA (6.62 μM). The… CONTINUE READING
