Regeneration of haploids by tissue culture in groundnut would facilitate the rapid
production of homozygous lines. Response of genotypes to different media was studied.
Murashige and Skoog  medium supplemented with 3% sucrose or coconut milk, gave
the best callus proliferation and rhizogenesis. Variable chromosome numbers, ranging
from n=20 to n=40, were observed in the callus cells. The responding anthers revealed early
segmentation of pollen, multicellular pollen and pollen embryo in all the three genotypes.
Keywords: Arachis hypogaea L., anther culture, pollen embryogenesis.
