Abstract: In the present study, the effects of three different surface sterilization agents i.e. mercuric chloride, bavistin and ethanol were tested on the contamination-free establishment of banana cv. Grand Naine under in vitro conditions. All the sterilization agents performed better results when used individually for different time intervals. The combination of 0.1% HgCl2 with 70% ethanol was also found effective for sterilization of banana explants. Best results with lower contamination and higher explant survival % were recorded with 0.1 % HgCl2. The present study concludes the use of 0.1 % HgCl2 for different time intervals to generate contamination-free plants in banana cv. Grand Naine with higher explant survival percentage.
