Abstract:

Synthetic seeds are defined as artificially encapsulated somatic embryos, shoot buds, cell aggregates, or any other tissue that can be used for sowing as a seed and that possess the ability to convert into a plant under in vitro or ex vitro conditions and that retains this potential also after storage. Earlier, synthetic seeds were referred only to the somatic embryos that were of economic use in crop production and plant delivery to the field or greenhouses (Gray, et al., 1991). Implementation of synthetic seed technology requires manipulation of in vitro culture systems for large scale production of viable materials that are able to convert into plants, for encapsulation, somatic embryogenesis, organogenesis and enhanced auxiliary bud proliferation systems are the efficient techniques for rapid and large scale in vitro multiplication of elite and desirable plant species.
