Pollination is the process of transfer of pollen from the anthers (male part) of a flower to the stigma (female part) of the flower through which fertilization is achieved. Pollination is a vital step in reproduction of flowering plants to obtain viable seeds.
Methods of Pollination
Self Pollination: The transfer of pollen from the anther to stigma of the same flower or same plant is self pollination.
Cross Pollination: The transfer of pollen from the anther of one plant to the stigma of another plant of same species through natural agents, is called cross pollination.
