- ... Pollen containment may be necessary to prevent the dissemination of novel genes from transgenic crops into sexually compatible land races or wild relatives in locations where these are grown or occur naturally in the same vicinity. Routine maize (Zea mays L.) breeding activities employ controlled pollinations and are sometimes done in areas where land races or wild relatives are known to occur. Th ...

- ... High temperatures during maize (Zea mays L.) pollination limit kernel number. Knowledge is limited on the effect of heat stress on both pollen viability and tassel shedding characteristics or of possible heat tolerance sources and testers. The purpose of this research was to determine the tassel response to heat stress, as measured by in vitro pollen viability and shedding characteristics, and the ...
