P.B. Vanave, R.L. Kunkerkar and M.B. Khamkar

Abstract

Kokam (Garcinia indica) an important spice crop is under commercial cultivation in tropical rain forests of Western Maharashtra, face major bottleneck in identifying female plant at seedling stage. In vitro clonal multiplication in Kokam was standardized with the help of shoot tip explant in Murashige and Skoogs modified medium. The plant growth regulator combination as 10 ppm BA + 5 ppm NAA + 5 ppm GA3, was found to be optimum level for establishment of Kokam shoot tip cultures in vitro. However, various concentrations of auxins in MS medium were found ineffective to induce root initiation in Kokam shoot cultures.
