Rapid production of doubled haploids (DHs) through androgenesis is an important and promising method for genetic improvement of crop plants. Through androgenesis complete homozygous plants can be produced within a year compared to long inbreeding methods that may take several years and costly. Significant advantage of androgenesis is that it not only speeds(More)
