In vitro culture of Dioscorea wightii belongs to the family Dioscoreace. An efficient micropropagation protocol was developed for the medicinal plant Dioscorea wightii using nodal segments for axillary shoot proliferation. Callus initiation was stimulated at the basis of the explants in 100% of the cultures by 0.15-1.75μM BA, 0.75-5.0μM Kinetin, 0.15-0.30μM… CONTINUE READING
