Compatibility and incompatibility in witloof chicory (Cichorium intybus L.). 4. Formation of self-seeds on a self-incompatible and a moderately self-compatible genotype after double and triple pollinations

After double or triple pollinations including selfing and the use of one-day-old compatible foreign pollen a severely self-incompatible clone could be forced to develop a reasonable amount of self-seeds per flower head. This number of self-seeds increased when the foreign pollination was delayed for e.g. 240 minutes in the double pollination experiment… CONTINUE READING
