Pollen Analysis Applications
for Wheat and other Small Grain Cereals

Amphacademy Logo - Amphacademy Symposium on Pollen Analysis

Virtual Amphacademy 2020

Discover practical examples of pollen analysis for wheat and other small grain cereals

In this online session, Georg Röll gives an overview of pollen analysis applications for wheat pollen and shows how you can use them to create value in plant breeding and seed production. Discover :

  • how to set-up a robust sampling and sample preparation method
  • how to quantify pollen shed over time using liquid pollen traps
  • how to investigate the effects of abiotic factors on pollen
  • how to compare pollen production of different varities
  • how to identify uninucleate microspores for improving DH protocols

Key learnings from this session:

  • Know different male-line characterization methods to speed up breeding
  • Know how to effeciently collect and prepare samples for pollen viability analysis
  • Know how Amphasys technology can identify different microspore development stages
