Microrhizome Induction in Zingiber Officinale Rosc.
This book deals with scaling up of microrhizome technology in ginger. Ginger is one of the most important spice crops of India. Now there is a reduction in its production due to some soil born pathogens, which negatively affects its quality and quantity. Use of infected seed rhizomes also spread the disease. However, the crop improvement program in this crops is constrained due to no or low seed set. Hence some modern technologies like clonal selection, mutation breeding and induction of polyploidy are used for its improvement. Propagation by in vitro induced microrhizomes, produced independent of seasonal variations is an ideal method both for the production of disease free planting material and for the conservation and exchange of germplasm. This book reveals various efficient protocols for large scale microrhizome production in three high yielding varieties of ginger (IISR Mahima, IISR Rejatha and IISR Varada).
