CHERRY

 
 
 

POLLENPRO CHERRY POLLEN INCREASES SET by improving cross-pollination.

By using PollenPro pollen, these common pollination challenges can be corrected:

Light Pollinizer Bloom

A shortage of pollen in the orchard will result in a shortage of cherries at harvest. Applying PollenPro pollen to your orchard will add the pollen your pollinizers do not have, thus setting more cherries and increasing your returns.

Poor Bloom Overlap

Poorly coordinated bloom between the main crop variety and the pollinizer variety can result in a pronounced reduction in the amount of pollen available to set the main variety.

By waiting too long to see if the bloom of the pollinizer will coordinate more closely with the main variety, growers may be losing their window of opportunity to set a productive crop.

Using PollenPro pollen in your orchard, when a lack of coordinated bloom is apparent, increases set.

Poor Weather Conditions

Cool, rainy weather inhibits bee activity which in turn directly reduces the transfer of pollen, pollination and the crops that are set.

In the spring, time is always of the essence when it comes to pollination. When there are breaks in the weather, it is essential that growers are prepared to apply pollen to their orchards. There could only be a few hours of good pollination weather, when the bees are active, and the temperature warm enough for good pollen tube growth. If that window of opportunity is missed, then the ability to set a crop of fruit is lost for the entire year.

By applying PollenPro cherry pollen when that window of opportunity is open, the grower increases the chances of setting a good crop and increasing profitability.

POLLENPRO PEAR POLLEN INCREASES SET by improving cross-pollination.

PollenPro pollen corrects four common pear pollination problems:

Light Pollinizer Bloom

A shortage of pollen in the orchard will result in a shortage of pears at harvest. Applying PollenPro pollen to your orchard will add the pollen your pollinizers do not have, thus setting more pears and increasing your returns.

Poor Bloom Overlap

Poorly coordinated bloom between the main crop variety and the pollinizer variety can result in a pronounced reduction in the amount of pollen available to set the main variety.

By waiting too long to see if the bloom of the pollinizer will coordinate more closely with the main variety, growers may be losing their window of opportunity to set a productive crop.

Using PollenPro pollen in your orchard, when a lack of coordinated bloom is apparent, increases set.

Bees and Pears

Because of the fact that Pear flowers produce little nectar, honey bees are not attracted to pear flowers and seek other forage if available. Due to this reason, more care must be taken when placing bee hives in the orchard. There should be at least 10 to 20 percent of bloom open in pear orchards before bringing in hives.

The placement of bee hives in pear orchards is very critical in order to obtain good pollination. In Pears, bees should not be expected to forage more than 150 feet in any direction from their hive. Additionally, it is very important when pollinizing pears with bees, that all competing flowers from weeds and other sources be eliminated if possible. 

Many growers have been successful utilizing pheromone based bee attractants to keep been bees in pear orchards by making the flowers more attractive to the bees. If pollen dispensers are to be used, the pollen should be placed in the insert as soon as possible after the hives have been placed in the field. The air application of pollen has proven very successful in setting pear blocks, and is not limited by the foraging preferences of honey bees.

Cool, rainy weather inhibits bee activity which in turn directly reduces the transfer of pollen, pollination and the crops that are set.

In the spring, time is always of the essence when it comes to pollination. When there are breaks in the weather, it is essential that growers are prepared to apply pollen to their orchards.

If that window of opportunity is missed, then the ability to set a crop of fruit is lost for the entire year.

By applying PollenPro pear pollen when that window of opportunity is open, the grower has taken a good first step toward setting a productive crop. The application of pollen can make all the difference between profitability and economic loss.

APPLE

 
 
 
 

POLLENPRO APPLE POLLEN INCREASES SET by improving cross-pollination.

PollenPro pollen corrects four common apple pollination problems:

Setting the King Bloom

The king bloom is usually the strongest flower in the cluster of apple flowers. It is also usually the first flower to open in a cluster, which is nature’s way of ensuring that the strongest flower is pollinized. An apple set on a king bloom can be up to three sizes larger than an apple set on a side bloom. 

Applying PollenPro pollen when the king blooms are in blossom increases their set which increases returns.

Light Pollinizer Bloom

A shortage of pollen in the orchard will result in a shortage of apples at harvest. Applying PollenPro pollen to your orchard will add the pollen your pollinizers do not have, thus setting more apples and increasing your returns.

Poor Bloom Overlap

Poorly coordinated bloom between the main crop variety and the pollinizer variety can result in a pronounced reduction in the amount of pollen available to set the main variety.

Apple flowers are usually receptive to pollination from 12 to 48 hours, depending on the weather. By waiting too long to see if the bloom of the pollinizer will coordinate more closely with the main variety, growers may be losing their window of opportunity to set a productive crop.

Using PollenPro apple pollen in your orchard, when a lack of coordinated bloom is apparent, increases set.

Poor Weather

Cool, rainy weather inhibits bee activity which in turn directly reduces the transfer of pollen, pollination and the crops that are set.

In the spring, time is always of the essence when it comes to pollination. When there are breaks in the weather, it is essential that growers are prepared to apply pollen to their orchards. There could only be a few hours of good pollination weather, when the bees are active, and the temperature warm enough for good pollen tube growth. If that window of opportunity is missed, then the ability to set a crop of fruit is lost for the entire year.

By applying PollenPro pear pollen when that window of opportunity is open, the grower has taken a good first step toward setting a productive crop. The application of pollen can make all the difference between profitability and economic loss.

 
 

APRICOT

 
 

POLLENPRO APRICOT POLLEN INCREASES SET by improving cross-pollination.

PollenPro pollen corrects three common apricot pollination problems:

Light Pollinizer Bloom

A shortage of pollen in the orchard will result in a shortage of apricots at harvest. Applying PollenPro pollen to your orchard will add the pollen your pollinizers do not have, thus setting more apricots and increasing your returns.

Poor Bloom Overlap

Poorly coordinated bloom between the main crop variety and the pollinizer variety can result in a pronounced reduction in the amount of pollen available to set the main variety.

Apricot flowers are usually receptive to pollination from 12 to 48 hours, depending on the weather. By waiting too long to see if the bloom of the pollinizer will coordinate more closely with the main variety, growers may be losing their window of opportunity to set a productive crop.

Using PollenPro pollen in your orchard, when a lack of coordinated bloom is apparent, increases set.
