Cytoplasmic male sterility; Grafts; Tomatoes


Attempts to transmit cytoplasmic male sterility through intergrafts between Lycopersicon esculenfum and Solanum pennellii have been unsuccessful. This implies that in these materials, the factor conditioning cytoplasmic male sterility is noninfective. The results of this study and other similar studies by other workers suggest the possibility that grafting might be used as a tool in the classification of cytoplasmic factors affecting mole sterility in plants.
