Production of true shallot seed (TSS) can be increased by enhancing flowering and intensifying the pollination. Application of BAP enhances flowering, whereas introduction of insect pollinator intensifies pollination. This research was aimed to increase TSS production in lowland area of Subang (100 m asl.) and was carried out from June until November 2014. The research consisted of two experiments. The first experiment was arranged in split plot design with four replications. The main plot was time of application of BAP i.e. 1, 3, and 5 week after planting (WAP) and 2, 4, and 6 WAP. The sub plot was consentration of BAP i.e. 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 ppm. The second experiment was comparing TSS production from two populations with and without installment of Apis cerana hive. The result showed that BAP applied on 2, 4, and 6 WAP effectively increased percentage of plant flowering, number of flower per umbel, number of capsules per umbel, percentage of fruitset, and TSS weight per plant. Introduction of Apis cerana have increased fruitset, percentages of filled TSS, number of TSS per umbel, and TSS weight per umbel as well as weight of 100 seed, and germination capacity.
