Somatic embryogenesis was induced in coffee from in vitro cultured plants as starting material and the faster response obtained allowed lines from selected plants to be generated more quickly. In contrast to other systems, where embryos take 2 or 3 months to develop, globular embryos were obtained after 3 weeks. The optimum nitrogen concentrations for(More)
Embryogenic cell suspension cultures of Coffea arabica cv. Caturra Rojo were treated with salicylic acid (SA). Two concentrations, 10–12 and 10–10  M, had a significant effect on the growth rate of the cell cultures when compared to the control, and this effect was concentration-dependent. These two SA concentrations also had a dramatic effect on both the(More)
