The effect of media composition on microspore culture was investigated in one tetraploid and two diploid potatoes. The viability of microspores isolated from 4.5 to 5 mm buds was in the range of 33 to 52%. In media for anther culture, microspores showed no further development and lost viability within 2 days. In M1 medium containing mineral components, sucrose, uridine, cytidine, myo-inositol, glutamine and lactalbumin hydrolysate, 18 to 37% of microspores underwent mitosis within 14 days.
