Cryopreservation of Seeds of Lily [Lilium Iedebourii (Baker) Bioss.]: Use of Sucrose and Dehydration

B. Kaviani Livani

Abstract—Cryopreservation of germplasm at liquid nitrogen (-196°C) is a perfect method for the long-term conservation of plant genetic resources. A cryopreservation process using dehydration was performed for seeds of lily [Lilium Iedebourii (Baker) Bioss.]. Seeds were subjected to a rapid freezing protocol in liquid nitrogen following dehydration and treatment with 0.75 M sucrose for 1 h. Survival after freezing was nil for control seeds and, 75% for seeds treated with sucrose and dehydration.

Index Terms—conservation, dehydration, germplasm, lily, sucrose.
