Mutagen Testing with Maize
The wx locus assay in maize pollen grains may be conducted using one of two chronic treatment regimens and under in situ conditions. Solutions of a test chemical can be applied to the soil of plants grown in pots or to the nutrient medium of plants grown under hydroponic culture. Under in situ conditions, test plots may be constructed in the field, and various agents may be applied to each test plot. A series of control test plots must also be prepared for comparison.
