Production of Synthetic Seed by Encapsulating Asexual Embryo in Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.)

A.K.M.N. Huda and M.A. Bari    

Abstract: This study describes the investigation on the technology of synthetic seed production using somatic embryos in two varieties (Loda and China) of eggplant. To standardize a media composition of artificial endosperm of synthetic seed, different concentrations and combinations of phytohormones with MS media were used in seed bead to achieve optimum germination rate on MS0 media. Among the different concentrations and combinations, MS+1.0 mg L-1 BAP+0.1 mg L-1 GA3 gave the highest germination rate and it was 81% for Loda and 70% for China variety. The influence of storage at 4°C and 0°C temperature on germination rate was also examined. This investigation indicates that synthetic seed could be stored at 4°C temperature for 45 days.
