Currently available tissue grinders effectively grind most soft plant tissue such as leaves and stems. However, none of the devices tried in this laboratory would adequately grind fresh cereal crown tissue. A device made from stainless steel and mounted in a commercial hand drill is described. This device will rapidly grind fresh crown tissue and is easily cleaned between samples.
