MS Plate Contamination
 
Hello,

I am trying to select T1 plants on MS plates with 30ug/mL Hygromycin. It
seems that all of this newly collected seed is contaminated with bacteria
(Agro?). Is there anything I can add to the media that would kill the
Agrobacteria, but not harm the plants? Currently I sterilize with 50%
Bleach + 0.02% Triton. I tried adding a 70% Ethanol wash but that did not
help.

Thanks,
Heather
