Banana in India is mostly a crop of marginal farmers with little affordability to tissue culture plants which are 4-8 times higher than the sucker cost. Hence, a simple and farmer friendly method has been developed to bridge the gap in supply of healthy planting material with an affordable cost through macro-propagation. This method generates plantlets from sword suckers and initial explants so farmers can adopt this especially to enhance the planting material production of traditional cultivars.
