In vitro Organ Culture of Actinidia Chinensis Pl. as a Technique for Vegetative Multiplication
Formation of shoot buds, roots and globular embryoids were induced in in vitro culture of stem and root segments of Actinidia chinensis Pl. (Kiwi or Ichang). Among several growth substances tested, zeatin, a natural cytokinin, was found to be most effective for the differentiation of shoot buds. Complete plants were obtained by isolating developed shoot buds from explants and inducing root formation on them using a medium containing a low concentration of auxin.
