  • Together, the three modes of geitonogamy make a much larger contribution to self-fertilization than autogamy.

  • Johannsen further developed the pure-line concept and its relation to improving self-fertilized crops.
  • Third, all of the self-fertilized progeny from all the individuals growing in a specific environment were identical to each other, but different from all the progeny of individuals grown in a different environment.
