Abstract:  Somatic embryos of banana cv. Rasthali were subjected to 0-8 h desiccation and abscisic acid (ABA) treatment for improving plant conversion. Somatic embryos exposed to 10 M ABA followed by 2 h desiccation exhibited an increase in plant conversion (66%) compared to control (56%). Embryos treated with ABA followed by 2 h desiccation survived up to 5 weeks with 56% plant conversion upon storage at 10°C. This study suggests that combined treatment of banana somatic embryos with ABA and desiccation can improve conversion frequency.
