Scholarcy highlights

  • 2. Self-fertilization kinetics in the cultivated okra, and consequences for breeding
  • Self-pollen grain germination was stopped at different times of the day
  • By stimulated allogamy, confirmed the process and showed that allo-pollen grains deposited on a stigma after midday had only a very little chance of contributing to fertilization
  • We show that self-fertilization kinetics can be used to improve controlled hybrid production
