Abstract: Pollination is one of the keys to profitable apple production in Western Australia. Successful pollination and the formation of many healthy seeds within the fruit contribute to the eventual size and quality of that fruit. Successful pollination depends on several factors. This Farmnote discusses factors such as an overlapping flowering period, pollen compatibility, environmental conditions, pollen-transfering insects, distribution of pollinators in the orchard, and the use of crab apples as pollinators.
