: The stem of a flower bud is systematically excised to remove the anthers

and stamens before they die. In order to minimize self-pollination, this is done.

Hybridization by artificial means includes emasculation. This method is used by

plant breeders to prevent the pollination of adjacent flowers and pollinate stigmas

with pollens of the desired variety.
