DIPLOTAXIS TENUISILIQUA x BRASSICA CAMPESTRIS HYBRIDS OBTAINED BY EMBRYO RESCUE

Published on

Studies on pollen germination, pollen tube growth and micropylar penetration in
the cross D. tenuisiliqua x B. campestris revealed that 0.06% ovules were fertilized
at 5 days after pollination. Field pollination did not set seeds in this cross. Sequential
culture of ovaries and ovules helped obtain intergeneric hybrids. Starch gel
electrophoresis for peroxidases established true nature of the hybrids.
