Effects of honeybee pollination on seed in different crops
Author(s): Dr. Matangi Mishra and Akhil Srivastava
Abstract: “Transferring pollen from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma” is known as pollination. Honey bees carries the “pollen on the outside of the anther and carries it to the stigma”. Sometimes, the pollen grains only are needed to “transfer the stigma of the same flower or another flower on the same plant” and thus honey bee pollination occurs. Hand pollination can also be named as mechanical method in which manually pollination is done, it can be done by rubbing pollen from anthers of the parent flower on the stigma and that flower is again covered to avoid contamination by other insects. Here, we have compared the hand pollination with honey bee pollination via caged method and as a result we get to know that by bee pollination there is a huge difference in the yield.
