Low Cost Alternatives for the Micropropagation of Centella asiatica
A.V. Raghu, Gerald Martin, V. Priya, S.P. Geetha and Indira Balachandran

Abstract:
The study of cost reduction alternatives in micropropagation of Centella asiatica was reported. Low cost options adopted in the study were effective in lowering cost of production without compromising the quality of plants. The cost on media ingredients was reduced by using household sugar instead of laboratory grade sucrose and tap water instead of double distilled water. Use of liquid media during multiplication stage also helped in reducing the cost on agar. Rooting of in vitro developed shoots under ex vitro conditions also helped cost effectiveness.
