Date palm liquid pollination applied on ‘Fardh’ and ‘Gash Boumaan’ cultivars in Al Kuwaitet research station in United Arab Emirates
Date palm liquid pollination was applied on ‘Fardh’ and ‘Gash Boumaan’ cultivars in comparison with traditional hand pollination as control in Al Kuwaited Research Station in Al Ain (UAE) in 2016. The results showing that the liquid pollination fruit set was less than traditional hand pollination by 15-16 % for the two cultivars. Total yield of the trees pollinated by liquid pollination was also less than others pollinated manually. However, the quality of dates, were better on the treatment than control. The liquid pollination played the rule of early thinning.
