Pollination is the transfer of pollen grains from the anther to the sigma.


Self pollination is the transfer of pollen grains to stigma of the same flower.or different flower of the same plant.

Advantages of self pollination:

  1. Only one parent is required
  2. Offspring inherits its genes from parent plant so, beneficial qualities are more likely to be passed down to the offspring.
  3. It does not depend on external factors such as insects or wind for pollination.
  4. Less pollen and energy is wasted.
