Abstract

The influence of hybrid vigor on callus induction, callus weight, regeneration capacity of callus, culture efficiency and number of regenerated plants from mature embryo cultures of winter barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.) hybrid was studied. A total of 15 F-1 hybrids and their parents were used for mature embryo culture. The statistical analysis of the results revealed that positive heterosis was noticed for all these characters except for callus weight. Plants regenerated in vitro were successfully established in soil.
