Abstract

Global interest in soursop (Annona muricata L.) had increased considerably in recent years due to its medical properties. Nevertheless, there is a rather scarce information regarding genomic and genetic resources. Soursop fruit shows a short postharvest shelf life due to the high respiration rate,...

Abstract

The growth of wasabi (Wasabia japonica Matsumura) plantlets was compared in four concentrations of standard Enshi nutrient solution (25%, 50%, 100%, and 150%) and two kinds of supporting materials (rockwool and vermiculite) using an in vitro hydroponic culture system for photoautotrophic...

Abstract

An efficient protocol for the micropropagation of Prunus cerasifera using temporary immersion bioreactors was described. One-node cuttings excised from field-grown plants were successfully disinfected using 12% sodium hypochlorite for 10 min. Immersion duration, frequency and medium composition in...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Increasing global population combined with a changing climate is placing pressure on global plant production systems, and rapid leafy and woody plant improvement is required to meet the demands of the future. Conventional breeding is time-consuming, especially in woody plants, and potential new...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Many staple food crops, such as banana, cassava, potato, sweet potato, sugarcane, taro, yam, are propagated vegetatively. Crop improvement using vegetative propagules has special challenges compared with breeding of seed propagated species. Genetic variability is a fundamental necessity for crop...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Banana and plantain are important fruit crops grown in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Millions of resource-poor people depend on them for their livelihood and food security. These fruit crops are destroyed by several viral diseases causing serious economic losses wherever the...

AbstractFull Text

A protocol for rapid micropropagation of Artocarpus heterophyllus from seeds of a single fruit was established. The seeds were successfully sterilised using 40% Clorox (20 min)+20% Clorox (15 min) and 50% Clorox (20 min)+20% Clorox (15 min). The survivability percentage was 44.44%, while the...
