Studies on Induction and Differentiation of Androgenic Callus of Solanum Melongena L
Since the success of Guha and Maheshwari (1) in producing haploid plants in Datura innoxia, anther culture and pollen culture techniques have been successfully employed in the production of androgenic haploid plants in several plant species. An attempt has been made by us to produce androgenic haploids of eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) and to trace the morphogenetic steps involved. This paper deals with the selection of adequate nutrient medium to induce callus from anthers and the differentiation into shoots and roots.
