Abstract

The water content of pollen has a decisive influence on its storability in liquid nitrogen. Pollen with an initial high water content cannot be stored successfully at extremely low temperatures, so a certain degree of drying must be carried out before storage. Provided the viability of the pollen is not significantly reduced during drying, the pollen remains viable and fertile when kept at -196°C.
