What is/are the use(s) of andrigenic haploid culture?
1.to maintain pure lines by developing compete homozygous plants
2.useful in mutation breeding and observing the phenotypic expression of recessive alleles
3.to produce seedless varieties
4.more than one option is correct

Dear student,
In androgenesis, the male gametophyte produces haploid plants.
By this method the development of pollen into a gamete and a haploid plant or sporophyte is possible.
This method of androgenic haploid production useful in
  1. Haploid production
  2. Many species to hasten the breeding programme in several economically important plants.
  3. To generate homozygous true-breeding progeny lines in plant breeding programs.
Hence the option 1 and 2 are correct.
