Abstract:

Conserving the plant genetic resources through any means is of utmost importance to prevent the loss of plant biodiversity. Long-term storage using liquid nitrogen (LN) is usually adopted for developing long-term base collections of crops for use in the distant future. The fruit crops are commonly propagated through vegetative means and are majorly conserved as ex situ field gene banks, which require large areas and demand intensive field management. The need for repeated reculturing and chances of contamination during subcultures in in vitro banking necessitate a long-term contamination free conservation through cryobanking. Improved cryopreservation techniques will provide added security in the preservation of important woody plant germplasm formerly preserved only as field collections.
