Single node cuttings from pathogen-tested in vitro plantlets of white guinea yam (D. rotundata), cultivar TDr 93–23, were cultured in tuberization and half- and full-strength Murashige and Skoog media with 5% or 8% sucrose, with or without agar, in light or darkness and at 25 or 18°C. Microtuberization is influenced by interactions among the factors, but 25°C and daylight are critical.
