Parthenogenetic Haploid Plant Production in Styrian Pumpkin by Gamma Irradiated Pollen

Hamed Ebrahimzadeh; Mahmoud Lotfi; Mohammad Sadat-Hosseini

Volume 8, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 305-314

http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/ijhst.2021.294838.331

Abstract
  Doubled haploid method via parthenogenesis induction still remained prominent in Cucurbitaceae breeding due to drastic reduction in time and cost of newly released lines. In this study, different doses of Gamma ray (25, 50, 75, 100, and 200 Gy) were used to irradiate pollen grains for induction of parthenogenetic ...  Read More

http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/ijhst.2017.241714.205

Abstract
  Plum pox or sharka, a viral disease caused by Plum pox virus (PPV), severely affects the production of Prunus species in Europe. The first evidence of sharka was reported in Iran in 2000 . Due to the economic impact of this disease on crop production, recent advances in the term of  biology, epidemiology, ...  Read More
