In vitro Shoot Multiplication and Rooting of Banana cv. Sabri

Md. Moshiur Rahman, Md. Golam Rabbani, Mohammad Atikur Rahman and Md. Farid Uddin

Abstract:
The effects of different cytokinins viz. BAP, 2iP and Kn each at 5 mg/l alone or in combination on shoot multiplication and auxins viz. IBA, NAA in different concentrations (i.e. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 mg/l) on rooting of banana cv. Sabri were investigated. The rate of shoot multiplication varied in different cytokinin treatments. Among the treatments, MS medium supplemented with 5 mg/l each of BAP+Kn produced the highest number of shoots/explant (3.11), while no shoot multiplication was observed in control (i.e. no cytokinin). On the other hand, the number of shoots responded for rooting and their survivability were higher with NAA than IBA. MS medium supplemented with 4 mg/l NAA produced the highest number of roots/shoot (20) whereas 1 mg/l IBA produced the minimum number of roots/shoot (2.4). Plantlets grown without any auxin in the medium gave the least number of root (1). The micro-propagated Sabri plantlets were successfully transferred from pot to the field and 100% plantlets survived in field environment.
