Pea flowers are self-pollinating. About two days before the flower even opens, the anthers at the top of the stamen, which are the male part, burst and release the pollen. This sticks onto the stigma and fertilizes the ovary - these are the female parts. In many flowering plants, the stigma will not accept pollen from the same plant and fertilization must occur through other means, such as insect pollination after the flower opens. For gardeners, self-pollination is an advantage as it means more than one type of pea can be grown close together, as cross-pollination will not occur.

Self-pollination could take place in many different flowers like a pea flower or a daisy. ect...

No, it can not. Pea plant flowers are self pollinated.

Mendel prevented self pollination in pea plant by emasculation and cross pollination by covering the flower buds with paper bags.

Mendel removed the anthers from the flowers on a plant.

Gregor Mendel studied pea plants. Pea flowers have both male and female organs. He removed the stamen and hand pollenated the flowers so he was sure of the cross. If you search on cross pollination images, you will get pictures of this.

By placing a bag or sack over the plant to keep the pollen away from the other plants.

He used a brush to wipe the pollen of of the flower and placed it on another plant causing forced self-pollination.

In some plants example pea,wheat and rice, the anthers and stigmas of bisexual flowers ripen before opening of buds.self pollination occurs before the flower opens.

Pea, gram and pigeon pea etc.

Pea flowers are self pollinated but to ensure 100 percent self pollination Mendel covered the flower buds by paper bags before anthesis.

Pea plants can produce by self pollination. However, that is not the only way that they reproduce. Pea plants can also produce by cross pollination.

Cross-pollination and Self-pollination are the two methods used by pea plants in sexual reproduction

There are two ways they can pollinate. One way is to self-pollination and the other is cross pollination by insects.

by emasculation and hand pollination

"Sweet Pea" (Lathyrus odoratus)

This is not a real story. Where it takes place in the story is in a castle.

Gregor Mendel used Pea pod plants as they were easy to use, and fast growing. As in some plants, growing to full maturity may take months and even years. Pea pod plants are quick growers and extremely fast at maturing. Benefits: -Each pea in the pod is an offspring, meaning multiple offspring per plant -Colored flowers -Rapid generations due to life cycle -Cross- and self-pollination

Purple flowers are dominant to white flowers.

He controlled the pollination of the plants that he studied.

He performed artificial pollination with pea plants.

it obviously depends on man. take a pea plant that depends on various kinds of contrasting characters and cross it. when u get the f1 generation self pollinate it and u get ur offsprings..
