Nevertheless, crosses between cultivated and wild subespecies of V. unguiculata were fairly easy and their hybrids are fertile. Studies conducted at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) have shown that crossing barriers between V. unguiculata and several African wild Vigna species were due to abortion of young embryos and pollen-pistil incompatibility. With more basic research on reproductive biology and tissue culture, and a larger number of crosses among species and genotypes, there will be a greater chance of success for wide crosses between V. unguiculata and wild Vigna species which posses some very desirable traits for the improvement of this cultivated speciesSubject(s): FITOMEJORAMIENTO | VIGNA | HIBRIDACION
