Contract period: 01.02.2016 - 31.01.2019
Purpose of research: Applied research

The goal of this project is to identify the critical phases of pollen development in the crop plants wheat and maize when pollen sterility occurs at short high temperature conditions with adequate water supply. Using cytological and physiological methods pollen development will be compared with and without heat stress episodes using heat sensitive and heat tolerant genotypes. In the long term the understanding of the molecular mechanism(s), which lead to heat tolerance during pollen development, will enable the selection of heat stress tolerant crop and wild plants.
