The ability of forchlorfenuron (CPPU), a substituted phenylurea compound, for inducing somatic embryogenesis in peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) seedlings has been demonstrated. CPPU promoted somatic embryogenesis at a range of concentrations in all three peanut cultivars tested. Embryogenic response was dependent on applied CPPU concentrations. Exposure of seedlings for only two days to CPPU induced somatic embryogenesis, but the most effective treatment was to induce seed germination on media… CONTINUE READING
