Somatic embryos were obtained and plants regenerated from immature embryos of onion following culture on embryogenic induction media. Highest rates of somatic embrogenesis resulted from 0.5- to 1.5-mm immature embryos cultured on media containing 5 mg/l of picloram. Somatic embryos formed either directly on the surface of embryos or developed from compact cultures. The production of somatic embryos was significantly affected by the addition of auxin, embryo size and cultivar. The potential of… CONTINUE READING
