ABSTRACT
The main aim of this study is to minimize the time for callus induction and shoot generation with easily available low cost natural materials. Coconut water is a rich source of carbohydrate and other nutrients which enhance callus formation. Cyamopsis tetragonolobust has hypoglycemic activity. This study shows higher viability and rapid callus generation through micropropogation technique of Cyamopsis tetragonolobust seeds. the growth parameters were highly influenced by the addition of coconut water as the cultures grown on the media without coconut water.
