Functional male sterility in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) and its application in hybrid seed production

  title={Functional male sterility in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) and its application in hybrid seed production},
  author={Bistra Atanassova},
  journal={Acta Physiologiae Plantarum},
Advantages and disadvantages in using functional male sterility (positional sterile — ps, positional sterile 2 — ps 2, and excerted stigma — ex) in tomato hybrid seed production and attempts to elaborate systems for their more efficacious use in breeding were discussed in this review. It was concluded that the application of one of these types of sterility, (ps 2) in practice, although in a limited number of countries, showed the functional male sterility in tomato was a potential not to be… CONTINUE READING
