and leaching. Organic amendments improve soil physical properties by increasing waterholding capacity, soil aggregation, soil aeration, and permeability and decreasing soil crusting and bulk density ( Oades, 1984 ; Tisdall and Oades, 1982 ). Soil

cultivars were pollinated under greenhouse conditions with either self-pollen or a multicultivar bulk-pollen mixture (appropriate to ploidy level and species) to determine their relative responses to self-pollination and cross-pollination. The hexaploid
