Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We describe a new method to determine stigma receptivity by using a Peroxtesmo esterase indicator paper liquid (one paper+1 ml water). This technique enables the researcher to check instantly the receptivity of various types of stigmas and to locate the receptive area.
