Abstract

THE ease with which plantlets can be produced from somatic tissue, protoplasts and anther cultures of Petunia1–3 has prompted us to use isolated pollen grain culture4 to determine precisely the stage at which pollen elicits the best androgenic response, with a view to increasing the yield of haploid plants thus produced.
