The use of incompatibility in breeding programmes

Reproductive biology and plant breeding: 177-186

The use of incompatibility in breeding programmes

The subject is reviewed with examples taken from a number of crop species. Terms are defined, in particular self incompatibility (SI) and cross incompatibility (CI). Techniques to overcome incompatibility, eg., in vitro pollination and fusion of single isolated gametes, and the use of pseudocompatibility, are discussed.
