Abstract

SummarySomatic embryos of banana cv. Rasthali (AAB genomic group) were encapsulated in 5% sodium alginate to produce synthetic seeds. The frequency of germination of ecapsulated embryos varied considerably on different gel matrices and substrates used for plant development. Maximum conversion frequency of 66% was noted from encapsulated embryos cultured on MS medium. Plantlets developed from synthetic seeds were successfully trnasferred to soil.
