Biotechnology has been introduced into agricultural observe at a rate while not precedent. Tissue culture permits the assembly and propagation of genetically homogenized, disease-free stuff. Plant part culture technology is being widely used for big-scale plant multiplication. Excluding their use as a tool of analysis, plant part culture techniques have in recent years, become of major industrial importance within the space of plant propagation, sickness elimination, plant improvement and production of secondary metabolites.

This book provides a diverse learning experience to describe the tissue culture techniques, various developments, present, and future trends and its application in various fields. During its evolution, plants have developed mechanisms to address and adapt to different types of Abiotic and organic phenomenon stress. Plants face adverse environmental conditions by regulating specific sets of genes in response to stress signals, which vary depending on factors such as the severity of stress conditions, other environmental factors, and the plant species. In recent decades, the use of techniques based on in vitro plant tissue culture has made possible the development of biotechnological tools for addressing the critical problems of crop improvement for sustainable agriculture.

In this book, the progress made towards the development of abiotic stress-tolerant plants through tissue culture-based approaches are described. The achievements in the better understanding of physiological and biochemical changes in plants under in vitro stress conditions are also reviewed. This book followed with a focus on the application of biotechnology in the conservation of the genus Castanea and flow cytometry applied in tissue culture. Mineral nutrients are necessary for the growth and development of plants. The optimization of inorganic nutrients in the culture medium improves the growth and morphogenesis of plant cells, tissues, and organs in vitro.

Finally, this book concentrates on the potential roles of Si in plant tissue culture. As associate rising technology, the plant part culture contains a nice impact on each agriculture and trade, by providing plants required to fulfill the ever-increasing world demand. It’s created important contributions to the advancement of agricultural sciences in recent times, and these days they represent an essential tool in trendy agriculture. This revolutionary work will serve as a valuable information tool for the students and practitioners who are looking for a fresh viewpoint and search.
