Impact of supplementary pollination on the yields of strawberry

This article is about the impact of supplementary pollination on the yields of strawberry. The importance of insect pollination on the performance of strawberry was reviewed. Studies showed a 20% increase in yield for plants with supplementary pollination compared with natural pollination which reinforced past studies that have found pollination is better with insects than with wind and gravity. This suggests that the introduction of managed hives or additional wild bees can improve productivity.
