Abstract:

Hybrid varieties play a vital role in increasing vegetable production due to their high yield potential, early maturing, superior quality, disease and pest resistance attributes. Male sterility in vegetables is commercially utilized to develop hybrids and substantial progress has made in understanding the mechanism of male sterility. This review describes different types of male sterility involving GMS, CMS and CGMS, respectively are outlined. GMS commercially utilized in chilli and cucurbits crops, while CMS utilized in cole crops and root crops. It is of special interest for plant breeders to produce more efficient and economic hybrid seed trough male sterility. Male sterility helps much to reduce the cost of hybrid seed production in vegetables.


Keywords: Vegetables, Hybrids, Male Sterility, GMS, CMS and CGMS.
