The National Seed Storage Laboratory in Fort Collins, Colorado, is investigating pollen storage as a practical means for storing germplasm of clonally-held species. Careful regulation of pollen moisture content is necessary to safely store pollens and perform accurate in vitro germination tests. A series of dehydration and hydration curves were generated for Pinus ponderosa Dough. ex P. Laws., Picea pungens Engelm., and Carya illinoensis (Wangenh.) K. Koch pollens using five saturated salt… CONTINUE READING
