ShaQer mechanical pollination system

For pollination in greenhouses and for growing tomatoes in particular bumblebees are often used. This very natural and simple way of pollination provides very good results. Unfortunately the use of bumblebees for pollination is not possible or allowed everywhere.

For seed selection companies using the bumblebees is not always possible. Because of the small areas and the diversity of crops in the greenhouse, the chances of cross-pollination are very high. In these cases pollination will be performed by using so called vibrating sticks. This process is very labor intensive.

In Australia and New Zealand, the pollination is also done by hand. The use of bumblebees is not allowed here, because the bumblebee aren’t naturally present in these parts of the world. Stringent safety requirements relating to diseases and pests close the door on importing these bumblebees.

Pellikaan now has a solution to this labor-intensive manual pollination. This automatic vibratory system, named shaQer let the crop wires automatically vibrate with the help of a small motor and a across the greenhouse tensioned vibration wire. This new system requires only a small investment and instantly delivers large labor savings.
