Abstract

Subculture regime and carbohydrate concentration of the medium had a marked effect on the regeneration of green plantlets from mechanically isolated microspores of Hordeum vulgare L. cv Kymppi. A sevenfold increase in the yield of green plants was obtained by shortening the suspension culture time of the developing proembryo mass from 4 to 3 weeks. A further twofold increase was obtained by increasing the maltose concentration of the microspore isolation medium and of the culture medium. Under optimal conditions, a mean of 169±97 green plants per spike were regenerated.
