|Crops grown in the greenhouse by Grossniklaus and his team|
Many attempts at breeding apomixis into a population of plants have been attempted, but often result in infertile, unsuitable results. This article details other methods of research that have been applied in the past.
As a side note regarding my previous article about the importance of refuge crops, this research could aid farmers who claim crop yields are a factor behind why they do not engage in the use of refuge crops. These breeding methods could ultimately benefit both farmers and consumers.
