Anther culture and its utilization has become a rapidly expanding field of research in recent years. In China, new varieties of tobacco, rice and wheat have been bred by means of this technique (1). Successes no doubt have attracted attention for the use of haploids in mutation studies for positive selection of resistant lines to herbicides, fungicides and pathogen toxins (2). It is known that the biochemical interaction between tissue cultures and pathogen toxins is usually identical to the whole plant response (3, 4). Mutant cell lines in haploids have been obtained in Nicotiana tabacum and Petunia hybrida for antibiotic resistance (5, 6). Albeit methods for producing haploids in Solanaceous plants have been established in a large number of species and interspecific hybrids, development of mutant lines against fungal pathogen has been reported in only Solanum tuberosum (7). Resistant maize plants against its parasite, Helminthosporium maydis (8) have been evolved.
