Professor Koltunow said sexual reproduction naturally separated genetic traits in seeds formed in flowers of the hybrid.
“The key to preserving the seed yield gains of hybrids from one generation to the next lies with one of the quirkiest aspects of plant reproductive biology: ‘apomixis’ – a naturally occurring asexual seed formation pathway in plants,” she said.
