The treatments performed were as follows: (1) spontaneous self-pollination, in which inflorescences remained protected with nylon bags without manipulation throughout flowering to prevent pollination by insects; (2) manual self-pollination, where flowers received pollen from the same plant; (3) manual cross-pollination, carried out by collecting pollen grains of flowers from the second area; (4) natural pollination, where flowers were not manipulated and left exposed to the action of all flower visitors and; (5) Apis mellifera treatment: monitoring was carried out through the removal of insects of other species so that only A.
2010), suggested that self-pollination and self-compatibility in bromeliads evolved as a mechanism to avoid interspecific pollen flow among congeners in highly diverse ecosystems.
Abiotic and self-pollination are used for local pollination for the second rule.

Flowers require pollination for seeds and fruits to form, but for coffee it is widely believed that either self-pollination or pollination by wind is enough.

The scarcity of bees, on one hand, would make many plant and animal species disappear; on the other hand, it would force farmers to resort to various enviable methods to do the very job by hand: for instance, they may have to take dust mops to collect pollen from some flowers and then unload them on different flowers in order to make sure cross pollination, as opposed to self-pollination, takes place for the sake of healthy offspring.

Various studies show that species of Byrsonima, even though having requirements for cross-pollination, have some degree of self-pollination and self-compatibility (Barros, 1992).
we did not control for possible self-pollinations caused by bagging or unbagging capitula for diurnal and nocturnal pollination treatments, and we did not detect a significant difference in production of achenes in these treatments compared to wind and control treatments, as would be expected if manipulation of capitula had increased self-pollination.
Self-pollination in most cross-pollinated crops produces weak plants.
