Clonal Propagation of Averrhoa carambola Linn. Through Nodal Culture of Mature Tree

M. Khalekuzzaman , M.F. Alam and M. Nuruzzaman

Abstract:
Averrhoa carambola Linn. was micropropagated from nodal explants through axillary branching on MS medium supplemented with benzyladenine (BA) and Kinetin, Maximum numbers of shoots per explant were obtained on MS medium supplemented with 1.0 mg L-1 each of BA and Kinetin. Subculturing of regenerated shoots in MS medium having low concentration of BA (0.1 mg L-1) stimulates shoot elongation. Regenerated shoots were rooted by treating them with auxins and best root induction (70%) was observed in half-strength MS medium supplemented with 0.5 mg L-1 indole-3-butyic acid (lBA). Rooted plantlets were successfully established in soil.
