Somatic embryogenic cell suspension cultures of four ginger cultivars were established. Somatic embryogenic calluses were induced from ginger shoot tips on MS agar medium supplemented with 1.0 mg l-1 2,4-D and 0.2 mg l-1 Kn, which contained only half concentration of NH4NO3. Rapid-growing and well-dispersed suspension cultures were established by subculturing this kind of callus in the same liquid MSN medium.
