Abstract
To overcome barriers to genetic recombination and fixation, haploid plants were to be developed from anthers of hybrids and the chromosome number doubled with colchicine. Hybrids from the cross IR8 X Chianung 242-d3 were used. One haploid plant was obtained and treated; 14 grains from this gave 14 lines which were phenotypically identical, there being no significant segregation for agronomic characters. The doubled haploid plants remained sterile for two generations.
