Apis dorsata Fabr. was the only dominant flower visitor of loquat. Only one A. florea was found on the floweas in all the observations although it was present in very hign numbers on the flowers of Eruca sativa Mill, (an inter crop in the orchard), Other species of insects found occasionally were syrphids, housefly, antlion, bumble bee, cabbage buterfly and some other hymenopterous, dipterous, and lepidopterous insects. Syrphids occupied the second position following A. dorsata but their… 
Effect of enhanced pollination on economic properties of self-compatible loquat (Eriobotrya japonica Lindl.)
It is suggested that spontaneous self-pollination meets the pollination requirements for the SC loquat cultivars ‘Yehuda’ and ‘Akko 1’, and that the presence of pollen donors and/or honey bees confers a minor commercial advantage.
Determination of productivity and fruit set ratios of various loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) cultivars under Mediterranean conditions
The results showed that the high rates for the above‐mentioned properties were taken in 2002 except % blossom, the highest rates were for ‘Gold Nugget’ for the other three properties.
Cryphalus eriobotryae sp. nov. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), a New Insect Pest of Loquat Eriobotrya japonica in China
The survey of plantation records from around Suzhou suggests that this beetle was introduced from another area not long before 2017, and is of concern as a loquat plantation pest and as a pest of fruit production and ornamental trees within Suzhou, and globally.
