How is emasculation carried out in flowers?

Emasculation is the process of removal of anthers in bisexual flowers to prevent self- pollination. It is carried out in the following steps:

Bagging: Soon after emasculation the flowers are covered with bags.

Pollination: The pollen grains from the desired flower with desired characteristics are transferred to the emasculated flower. The flowers are bagged again.

Tagging: The flowers are then tagged with the date of emasculation, and date of pollination, and parentage.
