Abstract: <smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="place"><smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" name="City"> 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 <img src='/image/spc_char/micro.gif' border=0> <i style="">M</i> 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. </smarttagtype></smarttagtype>
