  author={Monika Bieniasz and Anna Konieczny},
Optimal weather conditions are necessary for the proper course of the flowering process and high activity of pollinators, which is the most important factor affecting pollination. Because weather conditions do not always favour effective pollination and because pollinators’ activities are decreasing, the application of compound stimulating pollination and fertilization may be a good perspective for increasing yield. Titanium is considered a beneficial element for plants. Preliminary studies… 


Fruit set and the effective pollination period in red currant as affected by nitrogen fertilization and exposures to red light.
Fruit set after self- pollination was high but berry weight and seed number were clearly lower than after cross-pollination, and in an additional outdoor experiment, reducing light intensity by 50% had no effect on fruit set.
The effect of temperature on stigmatic receptivity in sweet cherry (Prunus avium L.)
Results herein show that temperature has a clear effect on the duration of stigmatic receptivity and pollen performance, and may have clear implication in crop performance and in establishing screening criteria of best-adapted genotypes.
Perfect syncarpy in apple (Malus x domestica 'Summerland McIntosh') and its implications for pollination, seed distribution and fruit production (Rosaceae: Maloideae).
Pollination levels among the five stigmas need not be uniform to obtain full seed development within Summerland McIntosh fruit; even if one stigmatic surface is adequately pollinated, a full complement of seeds is likely.
The Effect of Nitrogen on the Selffruitfulness of Certain Varieties of Cider Apples
The use of summer nitrogen immediately after extension growth has ceased has been shown to promote fruit-bud production and to increase self-fruitfulness.
Effects of Foliar Application of Titanium on Seed Yield in Timothy (Phleum pratense L.)
Abstract Titanium is one of a plant biostimulators. It stimulates life processes, growth and development, as well as affects physiological and biochemical pathways, often increasing biomass
Asynchronous development of stigmatic receptivity in the pear (Pyrus communis; Rosaceae) flower.
Development of stigma receptivity in the pentacarpellar pear (Pyrus communis) flower showed that stigmas in different developmental stages coexist within a flower and that the acquisition and cessation of stigmatic receptivity by each carpel occur in a sequential manner.
Evaluation of Pollen Quality and Self-Fertility in Selected Cultivars of Asian and European Pears
The results clearly showed that none of the Asian cultivars are self-fertile, and they require a pollen – donor to produce fruits.
Breeding Apple (Malus x Domestica Borkh)
The apple tree is a hybrid originating from a combination of wild species (Malus sieversii is supposed to be the main contributor), and is cultivated in most of the temperate regions due to the fruit’s quality, its easiness to propagate, and its natural aptitude to bear.
