Immature embryos of the maize inbred line CHI-31 were regenerated on N-6 basal medium containing 2,5 μM 2,4 D, and 2470 plantlets were obtained from somatic embryogenesis. The phenotypic variation of 554 somaclones was screened in the R2 generation. Confirmation of their genetic variation for some quantitative traits of agronomic interest was assessed in the R3 generation. Eight sublines showed significant differences in plant height and flowering date as compared to the original maize inbred line CHI-31. The study was aimed at identification of the nature and excent of somaclonal variation and substantiation of its genetic potential for maize improvement.
