Culturing of plant cells, tissues and organs in controlled and disinfected conditions which includes light intensity, humidity and temperature is known as “Plant Tissue Culture”. From the past several years, regeneration of different plants under lab conditions from different plant cells and tissues has been playing a very important role in examining plant genetics and their physiology. This technique is known to help the plants in propagation and increases their soil’s agronomic performance. In this review, we focus on the impact of plant tissue culture techniques in wheat crop, such as embryo culture, mature and immature embryo culture, effect of media on callus induction and regeneration, media and genotype interaction on callus induction and regeneration, somatic embryogenesis, correlation of agronomic trait on callus induction, and regeneration and somaclonal variations.
