Give reason :
Emasculation is done in a flower which is selected as female parent.
- Emasculation is the process of removal of the male reproductive organs from an organism. In plants, it is done by removing the stamens of a flower before they achieve reproductive maturity.
- This is usually done in bisexual flowers to prevent self pollination. Emasculation is followed by bagging the flower and then the desired pollen grains are introduced on the stigma for hybridisation.
- It is done in the flower which is selected as the female parent because after emasculation only the female reproductive parts of the flower remain in it.
