Plant Diseases/Apricot tree without fruits

Question
Last year our apricot tree was full of fruits that ripen with no problems.
But this year there is no crop at all.All fruits fell off,some just after blooming,some while just as big as beans and the rest with dimension of a cherry.The fruits grew very slowly too.There is no fruit at all now.The soil is good in moisture,no root rot,there were a lot of pollinators-bees,there was sunny weather with some rainy days and the foliage is wealthy.It just seems that the stalks were too weak to keep the fruits.Any idea?Thanks...

Answer
Janko:
From your description, these symptoms do not sound like an infectious disease or insect issue. I would be suspicious of an environmental stress.  It maybe related to temperature or other factor. Nutrition may play a role. Consider contactING your local nursery or garden center for their input.
