Abstract

A pollinator is an agent which causes pollination by transferring pollen grains from the anthers of a flower to me stigma of the same flower, or of a different flower or flowers of the same species. Many individual cruciferous and leguminous flowers are unable to be fertilized by their own pollen and require pollen from another flower of the same species (cross-pollination). Cross-pollination is said to improve seed production even in self-fertile crops.
