Hypocotyl and stem explants of 12 cultivars of mothbean callused and differentiated embryoids/shoot buds on basal medium devoid of growth regulators. Cotyledon and leaf explants failed to differentiate. Factors that influence differentiation of embryoids/shoot buds such as pre-conditioning of the germinating seeds with cytokinins and antiauxins, size and orientation of the explant on the medium and use of thin-layer peelings as explant were investigated. The shoot buds/embryoids developed into full fledged plantlets with roots on the same medium and were reared to maturity in field.
