Abstract

Potato seedlings of various potato genotypes free from the following viruses PVS (potato viruses S), PVX (potato viruses X), PVY (potato viruses Y), PLRV (potato leafroll virus), PVA (potato viruses A) and PMTV (potato mop-top viruses) were obtained via meristem culture and they were increased in vitro. Seedlings were grown in the greenhouse and mini tubers obtained were tested in the seed bed and in the field trials.
