Tissue Culture and the G9 Banana
The G9 variety of bananas is the most popular for the purpose of cultivation among farmers. It is a high-yielding Cavendish variety that was brought to India from Israel in 1995 and put to commercial use. Every year, over 5 million TC plantlets of G9 are planted in roughly 17% of India's total cultivated banana land.
