Ovule and embryo culture to obtain hybrids from interspecific incompatible pollinations in chickpea

  title={Ovule and embryo culture to obtain hybrids from interspecific incompatible pollinations in chickpea},
  author={Nalini Mallikarjuna},
Many of the wild species of chickpea were not accessible to the improvement of chickpea due to cross incompatibility. In these interspecific incompatible crosses, fertilization takes place but the embryo aborts a few days later. The only way to obtain hybrid plants is by the application of growth regulators to pollinated pistils to prevent initial pod abscission and to save the aborting hybrid embryos by embryo rescue techniques. Although there are a few papers on regeneration from different… CONTINUE READING
