Medicinal plants are valuable source of medicines and many other pharmaceutical sources. The conventional propagation method is the principal means of propagation and takes a long time for multiplication because of low rate of fruit set, and poor germination and also some time clonal uniformity is not maintained through seeds. Psoralea corylifolia is traditionally used for the treatment of various diseases, so that it has tremendously demand in pharmaceutical industry. The high cost of nursery plants and the time required for restored plants to complete their life cycle are commonly considered the barriers to successful propagation. The in vitro mass propagation reduces the cost and completion of the life cycle can be attained within reasonable time, reducing risk of extinction to the endangered wild population. On the whole, the present review gives a consolidated account of in vitro propagation and pharmacological profile in Psoralea corylifolia.
