A) How can we obtain a healthy plant from a virus infected plant ?
B) Write the advantages of micro propagation
Dear student, (A) Healthy crop plants (free from any infection such as viral) can be grown from infected crop plant through meristem culture. This is because meristem remains free from any infection. Meristem can be removed from shoot apex, root apex, or axillary areas of plant and then can be used to propagate virus free plants. Many of the crop plants such as banana, sugarcane, potato, etc have been successfully produced through meristem culture. (B) Micropropagation helps in the production of disease free plants. Production of plants that are genetically and structurally similar that is they are clone. Thanks and regards
