  • The ability to exploit the long known phenomenon of hybrid vigor or heterosis, the superior performance of the F1 hybrid compared to either parent line, has greatly impacted the goal of production agriculture to meet world food demands. Hybrid production systems rely on an efficient and effective mechanism for inducing male sterility in one of the parental lines in order to ensure purity of the resultant hybrid seed. Natural male sterility systems are available but are limited in their… CONTINUE READING
