What is the reason for repeated self-pollination of the superior recombinant formed during plant breeding?

  1. A

    It helps to increase yield of the plant

  2. B

    It helps to reach a state of homozygosity to prevent segregation of the characters in the progeny.

  3. C

    It helps to harden the newly developed crops.

  4. D
