The potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) is an important food and cash crop having the first rank in the world from none grain crops to ensure food security. It is a high biological value crop that gives an exceptionally high yield and more nutrients per unit area per unit time than any other major crops. Two potato varieties namely, âHundeâ and âArarsaâ were tested for their microtuber induction under five levels of sucrose (40, 60, 80, 100 and 120 gl-1) in completely randomized design with 2Ã5 factorial combinations. The objective was to determine optimum concentration of sucrose for microtuber induction. In both varieties, among the five concentrations of sucrose, MS medium supplemented with 60 gl-1 sucrose exhibited a better response than the other concentrations in mean values of microtuber number, diameter, and weight and was found optimum.
Scholarly journals are generally academic journals that encourage academic and scientific research. These journals generally prefer to publish original works, conducted following a systematic research methodology. The articles published in the scholarly journals are critically evaluated following in-depth analysis of the research data. Scholarly journal articles strictly adhere to a standard format of writing.
Journal of Horticulture is one of the leading Scholarly journals in the field of horticulture. The journal strives to add in theoretical and technological innovations as part of its publishing remit and is devoted to publishing the highest quality papers. The administration of the journal is integrative, reflecting the fact that imaging neuroscience is a multi-disciplinary science.
