Application Notes
Plant species: Alfalfa
Callus initiation was achieved when the basal medium was supplemented with 1.9 mg/L Kinetin and 8.0 – 19.0 mg/L 2,4-D. Regeneration was achieved when the Kinetin and 2,4-D were omitted and the basal medium was supplemented with 100 mg/L myo-Inositol and 2,000 mg/L yeast extract
