Wheat (Triticum sp.) pollen stored in the spike at 4C and relative humidities varying from 75 to 95% showed highest viability when stored at 80% humidity; viability decreased at higher or lower humidities. In all treatments, viability declined during 4 days' storage, Benzidine-hydrogen peroxide and seed set viability tests correlated closely.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
