Negative effect of maltose on anther culture

--Y. C. Ting and K. Delorey

It was learned (personal communication) that when maltose was substituted for sucrose in barley and sorghum anther culture and regeneration of plants from calli, better results were obtained. Hence, the same procedures were followed for maize anther culture in the last two years. Up to the present, no better results were found either for anther growth or for callus regenerations.
