Tissue Culture Project

Banana is an important tropical fruit crop, vegetatively propogated by suckers. This crop is highly susceptible to viral disease like Bunchy Top of Banana which results in reduction of yield. The in-vitro propagation technique by using shoot-tip from the suckers is useful for multiplication
and production of virus free plantlets. The large-scale propagation of disease free Banana plantlets is expected to minimize the cost of production and optimize the yields.

hereafter, MSSCL had started Tissue Culture Banana plantlets replication since 1993. In 2002, it has established the state-of-the-art Tissue Culture Laboratory at Mahabeej Biotechnology Centre, Nagpur to produce on large scale Tissue Culture plantlets of Banana by micro-propagation technique.
