Abstract

In vitro microtuberization represents the transitory phase of in vitro multiplication of a healthy material and on field multiplication. Microtubers production is an efficient method for obtaining a healthy material, thus leading to a reduction of the potato production process with 3-4 years. The microtubers of Romanian varieties were obtained from potato micro-cuttings cultured on Murashige-Skoog medium enriched with Cumarin and Kinetin. Sucrose was found to be the most important stimulus for inducing the microtubers. The cultures were maintained in darkness, at 18-20°C for 8-10 weeks for inducing and growing microtubers. The microtubers are important as they can be produced at any time of the year, they are easy to be transported and deposited.
