 A bag of polythene butter paper, when applied to emasculated flowers

(which are in the bud stage), prevents pollen contamination of its stigmas.

Emasculated flowers can be removed from their buds and stuffed into a bag of

butter paper before anthesis. A pre-sterilized brush is used for dusting the stigmas

of mature emasculated flowers with pollen grains of desired male plants. Flowers

are then re-bagged until the fruits are formed. Artificial hybridization uses this

technique primarily. Plant breeders use this technique to prevent unwanted pollen

grains from contaminating the stigma of flower
