Pollination in a greenhouse 6 replies,2676 views

In open nature, pollination is realised by insects and wind.
A greenhouse is a covered production medium.
How is pollination realised inside the greenhouse,then ?

Sometimes it is necessary to hand pollinate.  Sometimes it is enough  just to shake the plant.

Replying to [yarenimex]: People may not realize this but for decades large and small greenhouse facilities have been using varieties of bees to pollinate both crops and flowers. Locally we have two greenhouses one small and one large that as a part of their business also sell some of the best sweetest honey in the state.

Dear Ranger,

It is very important and nice for all that friends having agricultural background and practices like you,to participate the agricultural forum to achieve the correct answers rather than guesses.

Since you harvets honey,too, you must have been using normal honey bees. There is another special kind of bee called "Bambus Bee" used just for greenhouse pollination purpose, colonies of which is also traded..

Replying to [yarenimex]: Are you talking about the "Blue Banded Bee"? I have heard of them but I believe that this bee or type of bee comes from Australia. IM unaware if they are good for honey harvesting but then maybe that would be another topic to get some answers on as Im not qualified in Aphiology.

These bumble bees( called also as humlebees) are black-yellow banded and have more and longer hair than normal honey bees. They are not good honey makers.They produce honey that will be eneough for their 3 days-needs only..So no honey harvest.I know Holland is one of the countries that exports them in EU region...

Hand pollination is appropriate for self pollinating plants such as Tomato's (which can also be pollinated by "thumping" them).   For non-self-pollinating plants you could grow the male plant seperately and use it to pollinate your greenhouse full of females.


Most female plants (from my experience) show a slowing of growth when pollination occurs, this allows you to decide when is the best time for fruiting.


Again, just my two cents[em1]
