As a result of improvements in regeneration of whole plants from isolated protoplasts and improvements in protoplast fusion technology, more new somatic hybrids plants are being produced. Both bulk electrofusions and microfusion of selected protoplast pairs are being applied to produce new combinations of genetic material. Practical application of this technology is leading to field testing of somatic hybrid plants.
