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, respectively (Experiment 1). In general, no significant effects of isabgol and market sugar were observed on shoot (1.0–1.3 shoots/shoot explant) and… CONTINUE READING
