Utility of thermotherapy and meristem tip for freeing sweetpotato from viral infection

Sweetpotato, (Ipomoea batatas L.), is vegetatively propagated crop. Due to the following cycles of propagation, viruses are accumulated, which contributes to the decline of sweetpotato yield and quality. Stem cuttings of Abees cultivar were collected from several locations in Egypt and kept under controlled greenhouse conditions. Samples were tested for …

From Laboratory to Market: Government-private sector contribution to improve sustainable development of sweetpotato production

Sweetpotato vegetative cuttings Abees cultivar were collected and serologically tested using ELISA and Western blot analysis techniques. Thermotherapy followed by Meristem tip culture technique was used for virus elimination. The virus-free plants obtained by this methods, were subjected to micropropagation regime. Adaptation and acclimatization of in vitro sweetpotato plantlets were …
