Interspecific hybridization of cotton (Gossypium) has been assisted by ovule and embryo culture. These culture methods were compared to exogenous hormone applications for efficient plant production from crosses between Upland cotton, G. hirsutum L., as the maternal parent, and various diploid and tetraploid wild species as the pollen donor. The best exogenous hormone treatment resulted in an average production of five seeds per boll and 4% boll abscission. Generally, exogenous hormones used… CONTINUE READING
