Micropropagation of Garlic (Allium sativum)

Yoko Yamamoto and Toru Tashiro

pp: 665

Garlic has a plant regeneration system which is described in textbooks for micropropagation. However, this tissue-culture protocol is not currently popular and growers have seeded parts of crops for a long time. The reasons for this are: the previous tissue culture regeneration system is not efficient, it is hard to plant at a suitable time, and the culture period is very long. This report describes the development of a useful system. A "useful system" means that it is easier to obtain materials, the contamination rate of the materials is lower, the cultivated period is shorter, the frequency of regeneration is greater, it is easier to establish in the field, and the seeded time doesn't depended on cultivated plantlets.
