Summary

Brassica oleracea plants include many common foods as cultivars, including cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts and more!
Self-incompatibility is a general name for several genetic mechanisms in angiosperms, which prevent self-fertilization and thus encourage outcross and allogamy. The reproduction of Brassica oleracea crops in purity requires a special protocol, which is outlined in this practice abstract. The protocol regenerates landraces or their selections by avoiding pollen contamination.
This information is relevant for conventional and organic farmers looking to reproduce Brassica Oleracea crops.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn to reproduce Brassica oleracea crops, like broccoli and cabbage, in purity!
What problem does the tool address?:Brassica oleracea plants are usually self-incompatible and they need to cross with other genotypes for generating progenies.
What solution does the tool offer?:A specific protocol required for the self-incompatible genotypes for controlled pollination achieved by spatial isolation in the field or pollination chambers isolated by net.
