Anthers of the Solanum tuberosum genotype H3703 were cultured on medium containing equimolar concentrations of sucrose or maltose. It was found that significantly more pollen embryos became plants after culture on maltose and hence the yield of plants per 100 anthers cultured increased significantly. Mechanisms by which carbohydrate source may influence response to anther culture are discussed.
