Welcome To Centre For Plant Tissue Culture And Biotchnology

Farmers always seek plantlets showing uniform growth, yield, characters, disease resistance and purity. Plant regeneration through traditional methods is a time bound and error prone process. Moreover, rapid and large scale production of plants using these methods is also limited. The answer for Rapid multiplication of disease free plants with Uniformity of properties among them, increased productivity lie in in a technique called Centre For Plant Tissue Culture And Biotechnology (CPTCB). It is also known as micropropagation when it is used for propagating crop plants.

What is Centre For Plant Tissue Culture And Biotechnology (CPTCB) ? :
Put in a simple term, Plant Tissue Culture is a technique that helps regenerating a whole plant from a small tissue or a cell. This is achieved in a suitable culture medium under controlled environmental conditions. The outstanding advantage of Centre For Plant Tissue Culture And Biotechnology (CPTCB) is that a plant can be developed from any part of the mother plant. There are various plants and crops that can be propagated through Plant Tissue Culture. Nowadays,Plant Tissue Culture is used on various types of fruits, flowers, medicinal plants and even trees. Here are some examples: Fruits: Banana, pineapple, strawberry Cash crops: Sugarcane, potato Spices: Turmeric, ginger, vanilla, large cardamom, small cardamom Medicinal plants: Aloe vera, geranium, stevia, patchouli, neem Woody plants (trees): Teak, bamboo, eucalyptus, populus.
