Abstract

Plantlets were regenerated from the shoot tip explants of Vernonia cinerea (L.) Less. in MS supplimented with BA and Kn. Maximum number of shoots in BA (13.32 mg/l) and roots in IBA (7.38 mg/l) developed. The rooted plantlets were successfully established in the field.

 

Key words: Vernonia cinerea, Mass propagation, Shoot tip explants, Antioxidant, Medicinal plant
