For the mass production of chestnut trees with selected, hybrid, or genetically engineered genotypes, one potentially desirable propagation strategy is based on somatic embryogenesis. Although methods exist for the initiation of embryogenic cultures of Castanea sativa from immature zygotic embryos or leaf explants, the embryos produced have had low rates of conversion into plantlets. This study explored the possible benefits for somatic embryos that have already undergone maturation and cold… CONTINUE READING
