Joint inventors from UWM and USDA ARS have discovered new nuclear male sterile (NMS) mutants of sorghum which can be used to create an easier breeding system using a two-line system versus the current systems that use three lines.
A three-component genetic construct comprising the capacity to produce pure male sterile plants, rescue the male fertility, ablate transgenic pollen, sort the transgenic seeds from non-transgenic seeds, and allow propagation of pure male sterile sorghum plants for hybrid breeding and maintenance of a maintainer line.
