Title : THE FLOWERING AND POLLINATION STUDY ON OLIVE VARIETY ARBEQUINA GROWN IN MONTENEGRO CONDITIONS
Abstract : Arbequina, Spanish olive variety was introduced in Montenegro in the last decade. With small tree size, tolerant to low temperatures and self pollinated, Arbequina was well accepted by olive growers. New plantations were established in several locations on the Coast and in the area of Podgorica. Since there was no previous study of this variety in our ecological condition we set an aim to investigate its flowering and pollination ability. During two years (2014-2015) at two locations (Ulcinj and Podgorica) characteristics of flowering and yield potential were studied. The date and duration of flowering as well as the degree of flowering were assessed. Isolation of the branches with inflorescences for self- pollination was performed before flowering. At the same time branches were labelled for open pollination. Before bagging the number of inflorescences was counted. The structure of inflorescences was analyzed, counted the number of flowers and the number of perfect flowers. Flowering was lasting 12-13 days on both locations. Fruit set in open pollination was 1.45% in average and in self pollination plot 0.1%, respectively.
