LASSAGA, Sergio et al. In Vitro Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) Anthers Culture. Cienc. docencia tecnol. [online]. 2010, n.40, pp.215-233. ISSN 1851-1716.

Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) is an important oil crop and an interesting agriculture production activity in Entre Ríos. Its nutritional qualities provide a high expectation for an increased national and international commercial demand. Crop genetic improvement is a tool that allows obtaining new genotypes adapted to constantly changing conditions. Consumers look for better nutrition qualities and farmers needs new genotypes adapted to the ecological and climatic requirements. Anther culture is considered the most successful method of producing doubled haploid plants in flax and it can be used in flax breeding programs to increase the efficiency and obtain lines in a short time. Although flax appeared to be recalcitrant to this technology through the study here presented some adjustments in the protocols that allowed obtaining a suitable growth at callus stage and reduced in a significant manner the calluses oxidation during the regeneration stage were made.
