Abstract:

Capsicum annuum L. is an important vegetable crop of India and grown widely in open field as well as polyhouses. Low seed germination and higher price of seeds is major problem associate with the cultivation of this crop. To overcome these problems, plant tissue culture offers technology to generate a nursery in minimum duration with several other benefits. For this purpose, a study was designed to evaluate the effect of benzyl amino purine (BAP) on seed germination and multiplication shoot induction from shoot apex and nodal segment. Explants were obtained from in vitro grown seedlings. The germination of seeds was early on MS medium supplemented with BAP with compare to MS media without plant growth regulators. The shoot apex explants found superior over nodal segments on the basis of number of shoots regenerated per explants. MS medium with 0.50 mg/l IBA was fount optimum for root induction in regenerated shoots. The results of present study shows a way to overcome the problem with germination rate with chili seeds and also can be used to regenerate multiple number plants within a short span.
