Wheat is a self pollinated plant. Wheat uses the pistil, the stamen, and the ovary for reproduction. Wheat needs to go through a cold period to grow, it also needs heavy rain, and also does not require much light. Wheat has 42 chromosomes, its diploid number, with 21 being its haploid number. Wheat is a complete plant. Within a few hours of pollination the embryo and the endosperm begin to form grains (seeds), and begin to transport them to the leaves of the plant.
