Preliminary studies on pollen production and viability in wild relatives and cultivated cassava.

Abstract

Cassava wild species are important sources of useful genes for cassava breeding programs. However, little is known about the viability and other characteristics of pollen within wild and cultivated cassava germplasm. This study is crucial to better understanding the process from pollination to seed production.
