Abstract: An efficient protocol for the in vitro propagation of the valuable medicinal plant, Syzygium cumini L. is described through axillary bud proliferation. Multiple shoots were induced from mature nodal explants cultured on Woody Plant Medium (WPM) supplemented with combinations of Benzyl Adenine (BA; 8.8 μM), Kinetin (9.3 μM) and Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA; 5.37 μM) produced an average of 35-40 shoots by 6-7 weeks after inoculation. The shoots were rooted in WPM supplemented with 4.9 μM Indole-3-butryic acid (IBA). Ex vitro rooting was also successful in this species. Plantlets established in the field showed 80% survival and exhibited identical morphological characteristics as the donor plant.
