Pollen quality in Zea mays as a prerequisite for sperm cell isolation and pollen transformation


Plant sperm cells as tools for biotechnology: 97-104
Pollen quality in Zea mays as a prerequisite for sperm cell isolation and pollen transformation
Among 11 hybrids, water content of pollen at anthesis varied between 55 and 60%. In hybrid ROC, germination of pollen grains in vitro increased initially with aging (caused by dehydration) but subsequently fell sharply. Grain set after pollination with dehydrated pollen of several genotypes was constant until the pollen water content fell below 15%, where it became a function of pollen water content.
