11 2. PollinationOccurs when pollen has been transferred from the anther to the stigma. When the pollen grain germinates on the stigma it creates a burrow called the pollen tube as it travels toward the ovary
12 3.When the pollen grain reaches the ovule, fertilization occurs
13 4.Pollination must take place before fertilization can take place
14 5.The fertilized embryo will become a tiny new plant inside the seed
15 PollinationTwo types of pollination are self-pollination and cross- pollination
17 Artificial Pollination When plant breeders breed plants for specific purposes
