In vitro Plant Regeneration in Cleopatra (Citrus reshni Hort. ex Tan.) by Direct Organogenesis
Keywords:Shoot regeneration, Citrus reshni, Direct regeneration
Maximum shoot regeneration (87.85%) and number of shoots per explant in the epicotyl segments having longitudinal cut in Citrus reshni var. Cleopatra were obtained on MT medium supplemented with BAP (2 mg/l) + NAA (0.2 mg/l). Maximum shoot length (5.10 cm), average leaf number per shoot (12), leaf length (2.12 cm) and width (1.5 cm) in Cleopatra were obtained on MT medium supplemented with BAP (2 mg/l) + NAA (0.2 mg/l). The maximum in vitro rooting (78.88 %) in the excised shoots occurred in liquid medium on MS supplemented with BAP (0.5 mg/l) + NAA (0.5 mg/l).
