Abstract

Multiple-shoots were obtained from shoot-tip and nodal segments derived from seven week's old in vitro grown seedlings when cultured on modified medium supplemented with 1.5 mg/l SAP. Root development from in vitro regenerated individual shoots of ramie was obtained when cultured onto modified MS medium supplemented with 0.5 mg/1 SAP and 2.0 mg/IBA. About 60% of these in vitro developed plantlets of ramie were successfuUy established In the soil. The in vitro propagation of ramie would enable faster rate of multiplication, conservation of germplasm and prevent deterioration of crops.
