Mutations in tissue-culture field plantings of banana



Mutations in tissue-culture field plantings of banana



Information Bulletin, Citrus and Subtropical Fruit Research Institute, South Africa ( 200): 7



Data are presented on the numbers of identifiable mutations in tissue-cultured Williams, Grand Nain and Dwarf Cavendish plants, assessed at the flower emergence stage (about 12 months after field planting). The highest mutation percentage was found in Dwarf Cavendish (3.33%) and the lowest in Grand Nain (0.63%), the average rate being 1.76%. The smallest plants (50-100 mm in height) had the highest mutation rate (9.61%) and those measuring 200-500 mm in height had the lowest (0.83%).
