Production of hyacinth mosaic virus-free hyacinths and lily symptomless virus-free lilies by meristem tip culture

Acta Horticulturae (36): 223-228

Production of hyacinth mosaic virus-free hyacinths and lily symptomless virus-free lilies by meristem tip culture

Highly tolerant hyacinth cvs, King of the Blues, Queen of the Pinks and Nobel, were freed from hyacinth mosaic virus. Lilies, particularly Mid-Century hybrids, were freed from lily symptomless virus by growing scale meristems derived from the bulbs stored at 2 deg C. Scale pieces were cultured on Sheridan's nutrient medium under continuous light at 21 deg C at any time of year. The highly tolerant hyacinth cvs.

In the Netherlands, weekly applications of pirimicarb at 500 g/ha for the control of the aphid vectors of the stylet-borne tulip breaking virus controlled the spread of the virus to a considerable extent and helped to reduce weight loss in the bul...
