Some somaclonal variants in pineapple plants obtained from different propagation techniques



Some somaclonal variants in pineapple plants obtained from different propagation techniques



International Journal of Tropical Agriculture 1998; 15(1/4): 95-100



Somaclonal variants of pineapple Kew, Queen, Smooth Cayenne and Kew x Queen obtained from in vitro and leaf-bud propagation techniques of axillary buds are described. The possible reasons for genetic variations are discussed. The rate of mutation in in vitro propagated plants was almost three times that in leaf-bud propagated plants. Among the cultivars, the hybrid Kew x Queen showed 10.9% and 5.7% of mutations in the in vitro and leaf-bud propagated techniques, respectively.
