Transcript of ARTIFICIAL POLLINATION

ARTIFICIAL POLLINATION
ADVANTAGES
- Increased seed numbers
- Increased fruit size
- Increased dry matter

WHAT IS DRY MATTER?
The part of food or other substances that would remain if all its water content was removed.
The primary disadvantage of self-pollination is that it results in genetic uniformity of the population, which makes the population vulnerable to extinction.
For example, a single disease to which all the genetically identical plants are equally able to get the disease.
- Artificial pollination is where human beings come in and physically add pollen into the system to do more than what the insect pollinators are doing.

- For example the kiwi experiment, what they do is harvest flowers, we mill them to remove the pollen and then apply it back on the flowers using a whole lot of different methods.

What is Artificial Pollination?
Milling:
Grind or crush something in a mill.

for example:
FLOWER POLLEN
What does milling mean?
Kiwi Fruit Experiment
- the kiwi fruit experiment is an idea that kiwi fruit producers in New Zealand came up with.

- they would get the flowers and mill them, then apply them back on the kiwi fruits so it would produce fruit that is better than ones that didn't have the flower pollen applied on them.
DISADVANTAGES
