VÍDEO XIV - Propagação in vitro de plantas

It is expected that in the next 3-4 decades there will be a need to increase agricultural production capacity by more than 50% in order to meet the needs of food. Therefore it is essential to be able to exist propagating material with quality and quantity. For plants where seed propagation is not an alternative, the in vitro culture of vegetable tissues presents itself as the most efficient solution to achieve its vegetative propagation. The technique allows to produce, large quantities of plants totally free of endogenous pathogens, and, therefore, is now an added value to the level of productive activity in plant nurseries around the world.
