With the aim of developing a rapid and reliable commercial technique for mass clonal propagation of pathogen-free plants of Vitis vinifera cv. ‘Bidaneh Sefid’, a unique in vitro propagation method using fragmented shoot apices was examined.
Primary leaf-like structures obtained from shoot apices fragmented in liquid culture, were successfully cultured in vitro in MS basal solid medium containing 2.0 mg L-1 BA. Induced shoots were sub-cultured regularly and the plantlets obtained were rooted in hormone-free 1/2 MS medium.
Plantlets were acclimatized and transferred to glasshouse successfully.
This technique has unique potential to produce commercially large numbers of plants through direct organogenesis in a short period of time.
It could also be a cost-effective way to mass produce clones of rare and elite plant germplasm derived from meristem-tip culture or genetic transformation.
