This study aims at establishing a temporary immersion technique for large-scale propagation of cocoyam (Xanthosoma sagittifolium). Sucrose was experimented with as a determinant factor for shoot multiplication in this culture system. The highest proliferation rate (68 ± 7) occurred with 20 g l−1 sucrose in the culture medium. This concentration appeared to be the optimal amount due to its promoting effect on plantlet development. The acclimatized plantlets showed a continuous effect of sucrose… CONTINUE READING
