Enhanced Rate of Multiplication of Tissue Cultured Raised Banana (MUSA) Plants in the Field

Aish Muhammad, Iqbal Hussain , Muhammad Faheem Akbar and Hamid Rashid

Abstract:
Multiplication rate of banana plants c.v. Basrai in the field was studied. The results showed that plants raised through culture produced 7.45 suckers plant-1 after 14 months of planting. On the other hand, number of suckers produced by banana plants propagated conventionally were 4015 in the same period of time. The results indicated that tissue culture plants produced 44% more suckers. This enhanced rate of multiplication may overcome the limited sucker production in the field.
