|Title:||An efficient <i>in vitro</i> protocol for clonal multiplication of Ginger – var. Varada|
<i>in vitro</i> multiplication
|Abstract:||An efficient, <i style="">in vitro </i>multiplication protocol was developed for <i style="">Zingiber officinale </i>Rosc., var. Varada through direct regeneration of vegetative buds. Multiple shoots were induced from vegetative buds on LSBM fortified with BAP (17.76 μ<i style="">M</i>) with 96% initiation response. The repeated subculture resulted in rapid shoot multiplication at the average rate of 4-fold per culture. The well-developed multiple shoots formed roots on the same medium after 2-3 passages of subculture, thus eliminating the step of <i style="">in vitro </i>rooting. The statistical data pertaining to multiple shoot and root formation revealed highest mean number of 19.1 and 12.3, respectively. The regenerated plantlets were successfully established in the field with 86% survival frequency after few days of indoor acclimatization.|
