Initial results of anther culture of varius maize genotypes in Vietnam - Los Baños, Laguna (Philippines) PCARRD : 2000 - p. 170-173 - Printed
Anther culture of maize has received much attention in Vietnam since 1995. From 1995 to 1997 various experiments in anther culture of maize, including 18 hybrids and 43 open pollinated varieties, were undertaken in the National Maize Research Institute of Vietnam. The results revealed that 16 out of 61 cultivars form embryo-like-structure (ELS) or callus after anther culture. Among 16 such genotypes, 5 genotypes can form callus and only 3 genotypes can regenerate plants. Percentage of anther response in formation of ELS in Summer-Autumn crop was found to be higher than that in Spring crop.
