Sapling Sugar Pines Grown From Excised Mature Embryos
Possibilities for the use of embryo-culture techniques in forest genetics research are illustrated by the successful production of sugar pine saplings from embryos excised from mature seed. The embryos were grown on nutrient agar in glass jars and transferred to forest soil in cans after a few months. About two years later, the seedlings were outplanted in the Eddy Arboretum at the Institute of Forest Genetics near Placerville, California. After ten years, the young trees compared favorably in size and vigor with forest grown trees of approximately the same age.
