Suitability of meristem culture for the propagation of wild and primitive forms of potato

Elhag, Ayoub Zeyada; Mix-Wagner, Gunda; Dambroth, Manfred GND

Wild and primitive Solanum genotypes are usually propagated using tubers or true seeds. The suitability of fifty-eight potato genotypes for propagation using meristem culture was tested in this study. The culture medium was consisted of Murashige and Skoog salts. Almost all tested genotypes gave well developed shoots and high fresh weights as well. Root formation was lower than that of shoots which could be improved using growth hormones. The results showed that wild and primitive forms of potato could be propagated using in vitro meristem culture
