Answer :

The process of production of seeds without fertilization is called apomixis. It is an asexual mode of reproduction present in certain species like grasses and Asteraceae. So it doesn’t involve the processes like syngamy and meiosis.


It is very important for producing hybrid seeds. The production of hybrid seeds by cultivation is very expensive and it is very difficult to maintain the hybrid characteristics by sowing the hybrid seeds due to segregation of characters. By introducing apomixis, the segregation of characters can be avoided.
