The varietal diversity of sago palm and its importance for development as a genetic resource


, : The varietal diversity of sago palm and its importance for development as a genetic resource. Towards greater advancement of the sago industry in the ' 90s Proceedings of the fourth international sago symposium, 6-9 August 1990, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia: 46-50

In Malaysia and Indonesia, the utilization of sago palms (Metroxylon sagu and M. rumphii as an industrial crop is being planned. This report discusses the past, present and future use of sago palms under the headings: (1) historical background of sago palm utilization; (2) the present state of sago palm utilization; and (3) the varieties of sago palm and their classification.

In vitro stimulation of embryo growth and multiple shoot induction from sago [M. sagu] were examined. Addition of activated charcoal and dark culture were effective for embryo germination. Initially dark culture was effective for embryo growth; li...

This article explores why this does not a...
