  • Plastic tents reduce pollen contamination in a scots pine seed orchard

    Etiketter: Forest research and education
    External pollen contamination reduces the quality of seed orchard seeds, and there have been many attempts to find measures to reduce it. In this study, plastic isolation tents were erected over the grafts in a north Swedish Scots pine seed orchard, and isolation was maintained for one month after the pollination season. Analysis of DNA markers showed a significant reduction in contamination rate, from 23% in outdoor open blocks to 0% inside the tents. Selfing was higher inside the tents, but it could be reduced by supplementary mass pollination.
