Notes: Culture of Pine Callus on a Defined Medium
Abstract:Callus cultures of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris, Mill.) have been successfully grown for 18 months, through 12 transfers, on a defined synthetic agar medium similar to the one developed by Murashige and Skoog (University of Wisconsin) for the improved growth of tobacco callus. The pine callus cultures double in size in 4 to 6 weeks, are friable in nature, and have a healthy green color.
