A review of plant embryo culture
TLDR
The protoplast fusion mediated transfer of organelles from Microcitrus and Citrus and regeneration of novel alloplasmic trees and changes in methodological requirements among cultivars and species are studied. Expand
Chromosome doubling and fertility study of Alstroemeria aurea × A. caryophyllaea
TLDR
The fertility of the hybrid was not restored although the pollen stainability was increased from 0 to 12% after chromosome doubling, and this results indicate that the sterility of this hybrid is not only caused by parental chromosome differences, but other complex fertility/sterility-regulating mechanisms are involved too. Expand
Plant Tissue Culture Techniques for Breeding
TLDR
In vitro plant tissue culture regeneration procedures have been applied successfully in many species and have been used to create plants that are disease and insect resistant and tolerant to water stress and demonstrate enhanced growth and improved yields and much more. Expand
Rhizome splitting: a new micropropagation technique to increase in vitro propagule yield in Alstroemeria
TLDR
The growth of in vitro Alstroemeria hybrids was investigated through morphological studies and plants produced with the split technique rooted and flowered regularly and were true-to-type. Expand
Calcium and Nitrogen Fertilization of Alstroemeria for Cut Flower Production
TLDR
Flower production was not affected by Ca supply, but increased with N supply to a maximum of about four stems per plant on a weekly basis at 28.5 mmol.L -1, and should be managed to maintain leaf tissue N close to 45 g.kg -1. Expand
Meristem culture and virus eradication in Alstroemeria
TLDR
Greenhouse evaluation of virus-negative and AlMV-infected Alstroemeria plants showed that healthy plants produced more floral stems, more vegetative stems, longer floral stems and gave a higher fresh weight than infected plants. Expand
PROPAGATION STUDIES ON CHILEAN GEOPHYTES
TLDR
A 4-year study was conducted to test different methods of both sexual and vegetative propagation on 19 species, finding the optimum germination procedures various seed treatments were tested including: soaking, chilling, and scarification, among others. Expand
Resin-coated Fertilizers Affect Postproduction Growth, but Not Flowering, of Potted Alstroemeria
TLDR
It is concluded that potted Alstroemeria do not need fertilizer for continued flowering, and fertilization favors production of vegetative stems relative to flowering stems, but application of RCF to marketable plants prevents chlorosis, increases fresh weight, and, if low to moderate rates of formulations with N-P ratios of at least 6:1 are applied, does not inhibit flowering. Expand
Somaclonal variation as a tool to develop pest resistant plants of Torenia fournieri ‘Compacta Blue’
TLDR
Callus cultures of Torenia fournieri ‘Compacta Blue’ were initiated on a modified Murashige and Skoog salt medium and Regenerants from cultures screened with whiteflies in vitro had fewer eggs, immatures and live adults than controls. Expand
