A study was conducted to investigate the efficiency of cultural and propagation solutions in solving cultivation trial problems such as premature growth depression in early summer, sensitivity to summer moisture, and weakened vigour of seed bulbs of shallot (A. cepa var. ascalonicum) following successive propagation. Basal plate, floral organ and apical meristem cultures were the methods used. Genetically stable plantlets were obtained by the basal plate culture.
