In vitro regeneration of Cymbopogon polyneuros Stapf was obtained through callus culture using leaf base, node, and root as explants. Callus was induced from different explants with 2–5 mg/1 α-naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) and 1–2 mg/1 kinetin in Murashige and Skoog's (MS) basal medium. High frequency shoots were noticed from leaf-base callus supplemented with 3.5 mg/1 6-benzylaminopurine (BA), L-arginine, adenine, and a low level of NAA (0.2 mg/1). About 80–85 shoot buds were obtained from ca. 200 mg of callus per culture. The individual shoots produced root in the presence of 0.5–3 mg/1 indole 3-butyric acid or its potassium salt. Regenerated plants were cytologically and phenotypically stable. Regenerants were transplanted into soil and subsequently transferred to the field.
