Elaeis guineensis, oil palm, is an important oil bearing crop of Palmaceae family. Conventional breeding to get improved palm varieties has been very slow as the breeding cycle can take up to ten years. Clonal propagation has therefore been used to select for better plants and also for developing better varieties through tissue culture. The relationship More...
