Shattering is bad! But so is the way we measure it

By Joan Barreto Ortiz

I am a new graduate student on the Plant Breeding/Molecular Genetics track in the Applied Plant Sciences program at the University of Minnesota. I did my undergraduate degree in Agronomy at the Universidad del Tolima in Colombia, where I am originally from. One of my main objectives for my current project is to develop novel systems that attempt to understand the genetics of seed shattering—the seed loss due to detachment from the spike—in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) seed production and strategies that can be used to breed for better seed retention.
