Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: Diluted pollens would have many uses by the tree breeder. Dilutions would be particularly advantageous in making many controlled pollinations with a limited amount of pollen. They also would be useful in artificial mass pollinations of orchards or single trees. Diluted pollens might help overcome troublesome genetic barriers to crossing. Feasibility o,f using diluted pollens is being studied at the Institute of Forest Genetics at Placerville, California, in an effort to develop improved procedures of hybridizing pines.
