Abstract

Elimination of DasMV and KMV and mass multiplication through shoot tip culture in konjak plants.

Abstract

Shoot tips of Amorphophallus konjac [A. rivieri] induced protocorm-like calluses (PLC) on medium containing NAA, and the continuous division of PLC yielded plantlets in large quantities. DasMV (dasheen mosaic potyvirus) and KMV (konjac mosaic virus) were eliminated at a high rate when shoot tips where cut off at 0.3-0.5 mm.
