In a successful season of hybrid seed production, timing is everything. The seed company will be able to get the fields they are responsible for planted and the female plants will have their male flowers removed without damage to the female flower. In this way they will not receive pollen from themselves but only from the desired male. The seed they produce will all be hybrid seed.
