Abstract

Medicago sativa lines with a high incidence of regeneration were established as suspension cultures and used to select for NaCl tolerant lines. Attempts were then made to regenerate plants from these lines. Regeneration was severely depressed in NaCl tolerant calli and the only plants that were successfully regenerated were from one callus of M. sativa cv. Regen S which grew in 62.5 mM NaCl. Plants from this callus, and new calli derived from the recovered plants, have shown a tolerance to NaCl comparable to calli and plants from the initial seed stock rather than an improved level of tolerance.
