EXPERIMENTS ON THE PRODUCTION OF VIRUS FREE RASPBERRY PROPAGATION MATERIAL BY MERISTEM CULTURE

J. Vértesy
Shoot tip meristem culture of raspberries was started with the purpose of eliminating heat stable viruses. Shoot tips of stratified and forced raspberry roots were collected, disinfected in a chloramine solution, and meristem tips with 1–2 leaf primordia cut out and placed in an agargel medium containing macroelements of Morel, micro-elements of Heller, several B vitamins at 1 ppm, myoinositol 100 mg/l, glucose 2–3% and IBA at 0.1 ppm. Rooting was induced using the same medium with a lowered auxin concentration. Rooted plantlets could be dissected for further propagation or transplanted to soil.
