Abstract

Anther culture has been demonstrated to be an applicable technique for the development of doubled haploid, i.e. homozygous lines of many crop species. In some species, androgenetic doubled haploids have already been shown to be a useful tool for breeding. However, anther culture results in sunflower have been rather unsatisfactory up to now.
