Abstract

Barley is naturally an inbreeding hermaphrodite plant so that each generation resembles its parental generation. New variation can be introduced by crossing parents that complement each other for desirable or target characteristics but requires human intervention to ensure that all the resulting seeds are hybrids of the two parents. That means that plants selected to be female parents have to be emasculated and are then fertilized with pollen from plants selected to be male parents. Here we describe how to emasculate and pollinate barley plants with a method that can be used either in the glasshouse or in the field.
