Rubber (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg.): In Vitro Production of Haploids

  • Chen Zhenghua 
Part of the Biotechnology in Agriculture and Forestry book series (AGRICULTURE, volume 12)

Abstract

Rubber is one of the main raw materials for industry and has many uses in traffic, industry, national defence etc. The rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg.) has been cultivated for only 100 years. Its culture on a large scale was started 80 years ago.
