Title
Synseed technology—A complete synthesis
Abstract

Progress in biotechnological research over the last two decades has provided greater scope for the improvement of crops, forest trees and other important plant species. Plant propagation using synthetic seeds has opened new vistas in the field of agriculture. Synseed technology is a highly promising tool for the management of transgenic and seedless plant species, polyploid plants with elite traits and plant lines that are difficult to propagate through conventional propagation methods. Delivery of synseeds also alleviates issues like undertaking several passages for scaling up in vitro cultures as well as acclimatization to ex vitro conditions. Optimization of synchronized propagule development followed by automation of the whole process (sorting, harvesting, encapsulation and conversion) can enhance the pace of synseed production. Cryopreservation of encapsulated germplasm has now been increasingly used as an ex vitro conservation tool with the possible minimization of adverse effects of cryoprotectants and post-preservation damages. Through synseed technology, germplasm exchange between countries could be accelerated as a result of reduced plant quarantine requirements because of the aseptic condition of the plant material.
