The state of art of mycorrhizas and micropropagation

Published inAdvances in Horticultural Science, vol. 10, p. 46-52
Publication date1996

Plant micropropagation has an outstanding place in biotechnology industry. Plant production through this technique can benefit from the utilisation of mycorrhiza, the mutualistic association between plant roots and fungi. Mycorrhizas can act as bioregulators, biofertilisers and bioprotectors, making possible the production of healthy high-quality plants with low chemical inputs. Research data in this field is presented, management procedures are suggested and potentialities for the joint use of micropropagation and mycorrhizal biotechnologies are discussed.
