  • Santalum album is known as East Indian sandalwood. It is the most economically important tree harvested for heartwood oil, and India is among the chief exporters of sandalwood and its products. Multiple shoots were induced from nodal shoot segments derived from a 50- to 60-year-old candidate plus tree (CPT) on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 0.53 µM α-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) and 11.09 µM 6-benzylaminopurine (BA). In vitro differentiated shoots were multiplied on MS medium… CONTINUE READING
