Dear netters,
I am currently having problems with some very important seeds stocks
contaminated by thrip eggs. These eggs appear to be resistant to common
sterilisation method (15min in 5% calcium hypochlorite), leading to
pest-contaminated-plants in "sterile" petri plates...
Any advice to get rid of these eggs without affecting seed viability
would be greatly appreciate.
Thanks in advance,
