User: Five advantages of polyploidy

Weegy: pol?y?ploid (pl-ploid) adj. Having one or more extra sets of chromosomes: a polyploid species; a polyploid cell. n. An organism with more than two sets of chromosomes. Examples of polyploid crops, Triploid crops: apple, banana, citrus, ginger, [ watermelon. Tetraploid crops: apple, durum or macaroni wheat, cotton, potato, cabbage, leek, tobacco, peanut, kinnow, Pelargonium. Hexaploid crops: chrysanthemum, bread wheat, triticale, oat, kiwifruit Octaploid crops: strawberry, dahlia, pansies, sugar cane, oca (Oxalis tuberosa) Some crops are found in a variety of ploidies: tulips and lilies are commonly found as both diploid and as triploid; daylilies (Hemerocallis cultivars) are available as either diploid or tetraploid; apples and kinnows can be diploid, triploid, or tetraploid. As you can see the term polyploidy implies diversities within the spectrum of plants that produce food for us and other sentient beings, so the advantages of polyploidy would also benefits the population of our shockingly dwindling honeybees, in such recent cases of synthetic pesticides affecting the behavoir of the honeybees called the Colony Collapse Disorder, honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their beehives, which to reiterate that synthetic pesticides have been causing. By adding varieties for crop growth would decrease the need of synthetic pesticides because pests florish in crops of one products such as "only corn" and/or "only wheat" to which people would call it 'monoculture' rather than agriculture which implies diversities of crops grown. ]
