EXTENT OF NATURAL CROSS-POLLINATION IN CUMIN

Published on

CUMIN (Cuminum cyminum L.) is an important spice crop of the umbelliferous
group. In India, it is extensively cultivated in Gujrat, Rajasthan, and other
parts in the
rabi season. A knowledge of the amount of natural crossing in a
crop species is useful in deciding the breeding method to be adopted, maintenance of breeding stocks and seed production. Ramanujam, Joshi, and Saxena
(1964) have reported cross-pollination in coriander
(Coriandrum sativum L.),
ajowan
(Trachyspermum ammi (L.) Sprague) and fennel (Foeniculum vulgare
Mill.). So far no work has been reported on the extent of cross-pollination
in cumin. Therefore, this work has been taken up with a view to ascertain the
extent of natural cross-pollination under Anand conditions.
