S.K. Mitra (Editor) T K Bose (Editor) D Sanyal (Editor) V A Parthasarathy (Editor) P. Das (Editor) M K Sadhu (Editor)
Synopsis The third edition of this book has been the result of a thorough revision with updated information that was first published in 1986, reprinted in 1991 and further revised and published in 1997. Meanwhile, lot of information has been generated in the field of propagation of horticultural crops in general and micropropagation, in particular. The existing conventional propagation practices have been neither improved or new methods have been evolved and a revolution has occurred in the field of biotechnology. While preparing the manuscript on ‘Biotechnology of Horticultural Crops’, which was published in 3 volumes, accumulation of enormous and valuable information n propagation of horticultural crops, particularly from in vitro cultural was very encouraging to bring out another revision of this book on propagation. It was a difficult task to summerise both macro-and micro-propagation of horticultural crops along with fundamentals of propagation practices within a proposed programme of a manuscript in one volume. The present edition is, therefore, published in two volumes. The first volume consists of propagation practices of fruit crops and 5 general chapters on fundamentals of sexual and asexual propagation, propagation techniques and tissue culture methods.
