A NEW TYPE OF FUNCTIONAL MALE STERILITY DERIVED FROM INTERSPECIFIC HYBRID
Plants with this new type of functional male sterility ensured a sufficient level of cross polination. The characteristic cotyledon shape of this stock is of special benefit. Owing to this, seedlings from accidental self-pollination and F1 hybrids can be easily distinguished.
This new type of functional male sterility permits to reduce costs of the production of F1 hybrids seeds.
