Consultancy

Kiwi Pollen will bring its experience to your orchard to assist with pollination planning.

Orchard Management and Planning

A review of orchard performance, in relation to the key indicators of pollination will reveal whether there are gains to be made by improving the pollination on the orchard. The review considers fruit size, dry matter, yield, and seed number. Kiwi Pollen also considers environmental factors that may affect the orchard including shade, temperature, moisture and altitude. Advice can also be given on how to naturally maximize the number of male flowers on your orchard, improving natural pollination and increasing fruit yield.

Pollen viability testing
Assurance that pollen is fit for purpose.

Kiwi Pollen will test any pollen for viability. The water bath method is used, incubating the pollen for 4 hours at 25┬░C.

Germinated pollen grains are counted. The viability is expressed as a percentage of germinated over total grains, including those which are ungerminated.

Machinery Repair

Kiwi Pollen also offer a complete maintenance and repair service for all of our specialised pollination equipment.

Our specialised technician will be able to offer you the best service at the best possible price to ensure you have the best results possible during your pollination.
