Term Definition

Cross-pollination occurs when pollen from one plant is mixed with the pollen of a similar plant, in order to create a new plant. It happens in nature, and can also be done by people. Cross-pollination can occur between genetically modified organisms and non-GMOs, which can be dangerous because we do not know the long-term effects of this process.
