Tissue Culture (Biotechnology)

 

Tissue Culture section established in 1984 under Department of Agriculture Science and Technology in Crop Improvement and Crop Production Divisions is engaged in large scale production of true to type and disease free sugarcane plantlets using apical meristem culture technique. This micropropagation technique allows faster multiplication of a sugarcane variety using smaller space. The Section is also engaged in development of elite sugarcane varieties using callus culture technique. Using this technique, it was possible to develop very early maturing, high sugared and drought tolerant variety of sugarcane (VSI 434).

The section works with following objectives
Development of elite varieties of sugarcane.
Development of cost effective micropropagation protocol for faster multiplication of sugarcane varieties .
Undertaking research programs on other crops (other than sugarcane) with consent from the Governing Council.
