The aim of the present investigation was to study in vitro somatic embryogenesis and to screen calli for drought tolerance using mature embryos as explants. Mature embryos of three aromatic (Pusa Basmati 1, Pant Sugandh Dhan 17, Taraori Basmati) and one non-aromatic (Narendra 359) indica rice (Oryza sativa L.) varieties were used for developing callus on Murashige and Skoog medium supplemented with 2, 4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (2, 4-D) (2.0 mg l−1 for Narendra 359 and 2.5 mg l−1 for Pusa… CONTINUE READING
