THE culturing of excised, immature plant embryos in vitro is a very useful technique for the propagation of otherwise abortive embryos often encountered in hybridization work. A method, adapted from that developed by van Overbeek et al. for Datura, was found applicable to the culturing of excised corn embryos 8 to 10 days after pollination and 0.3 to 3 mm in length.
