Mention one application of pollen bank. How is pollen stored in a bank?

Pollen grains can be stored in viable condition in pollen bank for many years in liquid nitrogen (–196ºC) and can be used in crop breeding programmes. This method of saving is called cryopreservation. The low temperature allows storing for a longer period as it reduces the growth rate of cells.
