Virus diseases and tissue culture of some South African flower bulbs

Acta Horticulturae (59): 71-76

Virus diseases and tissue culture of some South African flower bulbs

Since many indigenous bulbs are infected, methods for virus elimination and/or rapid propagation by tissue culture were investigated.
