Are pollination and fertilization necessary in apomixis?

Apomixis or Agamospermy involves formation of embryos and seeds by asexual methods without involving meiotic gametogenesis and sexual fusion of gametes.

Pollination and fertilization are not necessary in apomixis.

No pollination and fertilisation are not necessary in apomixis, because apomixis refers to the production of seeds without fertilisation. And when there is no fertilisation there is no need for pollination to occur.....
