Article Topic(s): Pollination,Seed increase
Research Setting(s): Landscape

AbstractStudies the effects of self pollination on seed set in Vaccininum corymbosum. Mixing self pollen with compatible (cross) pollen from the same population reduces the time required for berry ripening but also significantly reduces seed set.
