Plant regeneration from peduncle segments of oil seed Brassica species: Influence of silver nitrate and silver thiosulfate
- 340 Downloads
Cultured peduncle segments of B. juncea, B. campestris, B. napus, B. nigra and B. carinata produced shoot buds on Murashige and Skoog medium supplemented with benzyladenine and 1-naphthalene acetic acid. Supplementation of the media with 30 µm silver nitrate or silver thiosulfate enhanced the frequency of shoot regeneration. The regenerated shoots could be rooted at a frequency of 95% and transferred to soil where 75% survived and set seed.
