Abstract

Photoautotrophic growth in vitro of potato (Solanum tuberosum L. cv. Benimaru) explants varied with their initial leaf area and stem length. Photoautotrophic growth was much greater in leafy than in leafless explants. Variability in photoautotrophic growth was smallest in the explants with the greatest leaf area. The results indicated that use of explants with a large leaf area is important to maximize photoautotrophic growth and to minimize variation in photoautotrophic growth of explants in vitro.
