Abstract

There is an increasing demand in the grain handling chain to control purity and segregation of different classes and varieties of grains. Accurate segregation is needed to ensure that varieties with specific qualities are delivered at high purity and, for example, in the future to segregate GM and non-GM material. Since the grain handling chain stretches from farmers, to transporters, to storage silos, to end-users in the world market, low-cost rapid tests are needed. In addition, with the advent of end-point royalties, rapid variety identification is needed to monitor compliance in delivering new varieties subject to plant breeders’ rights (PBR).
