The gametocide was applied to the maternal parent at concentrations of 0.5%, 1.0% and 1.5%. The resulting intervarietal hybrids between Saxa and Sopel Lodu were investigated. As a result of the treatment morphological changes in the flower occurred which favoured cross pollination; flowering was stimulated by spraying 3 times with 0.5% FW450, but there was a considerable reduction in the quantity of seed set.
