Pollen studies in banana

, : Pollen studies in banana. South Indian Horticulture 36(3): 96-102

Studies on pollen viability, size and production in 62 banana cultivars revealed that these characters are influenced by genome composition and ploidy level. All cultivars of genomic group AB and a few of groups AAB and ABB produced no pollen. Pollen viability and production were highest in Musa balbisiana (BB), followed by the tetraploids. Triploid cultivars produced the largest pollen grains.
