A study was conducted to evaluate the usefulness of somaclonal variation as a means to obtain powdery mildew resistance in the background of an agronomically elite, high-yielding barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) cultivar. A total of 170 Ro-derived lines were regenerated from embryo-induced callus of the barley cultivar Léger. Forty-five lines were selected and… CONTINUE READING
