Bagging technique - Bagging refers to covering of emasculated flowers with the help of butter paper or plastic bags to avoid contamination of stigma of these flowers to undesired pollens. This technique is used during artificial hybridisation experiments. This technique is useful in breeding programmes because it prevents contamination of stigma with unwanted pollens. So, through this technique, we can allow the breeding of species according to our need and obtain superior species.
