Best Answer

The asexual reproduction process of apomixis results in seeds without

fertilization, such as in certain species of Asteraceae and Grasses. The hybrid seed

industry relies on this method. Increasing productivity is the leading reason for

cultivating hybrids. However, the main problem is the need to grow hybrid seeds

annually since seeds from hybrid plants do not preserve hybrid characteristics for

long periods because of the segregation of characters. By introducing apomixis

into hybrid seeds, this can be avoided. As a result, scientists are seeking genes

associated with apomixis.
