A method of apical meristem culture for the production and practical use of virus-free gladiolus corms

Bulletin of Ibaraki Ken Horticultural Experiment Station (10): 11-19
A method of apical meristem culture for the production and practical use of virus-free gladiolus corms
The optimum size of gladiolus corm explants was found to be a 0.3 mm cube. The survival rate of 0.2 mm cube explants was only 60%, and 0.5 mm cube explants retained some virus. Even with 0.3 mm cube explants half the plants obtained were not virus-free. Eighty percent of the virus-free corms planted in infected fields were gradually infected again between July and September.
