Pollination of tomatoes. II. Report of a trial on the automatic shaking of tomato flowers


Gartner Tidende 104(13): 3337-339
Pollination of tomatoes. II. Report of a trial on the automatic shaking of tomato flowers
Equipment for the automatic shaking of plants to assist pollination is described and illustrated. It is impelled by compressed air and activated by an electronic device with a time-switch. In a trial, plants were shaken daily for 2-3 seconds at 10.00, 12.00 and 14.00 h starting on 16 Mar., and at these times and 01.00 h from 17 July. The resulting increases in yield over yields obtained with unassisted pollination or hand pollination are shown graphically.
