In Vitro Propagation of Salt-Tolerant Wild Rice Relative, Porteresia coarctata Tateoka

Abstract

Micropropagation of Porteresia coarctata Tateoka, a wild relative of rice with useful genetic traits of salinity and submergence tolerance, was achieved through nodal segment culture. Woody Plant (WP) medium supplemented with benzyladenine (5.5 μm) and kinetin (2.3 μm) gave the greatest response to initiation and multiplication. The multiplication rate of… (More)
