Callus induction and plant regeneration from explants of commercial cultivars of leek (Allium ampeloprasum var. porrum L.)


Plant regeneration capacity was studied for 8 cultivars and 4 accessions of leek (A. ampeloprasum var. porrum L.). Compact callus was induced on embryo and leaf explants on three different media. The highest frequency of compact callus formation (up to 90%) was obtained when mature, zygotic embryos were cultured on MS medium, containing 30 g/l sucrose and 1… (More)
