Wild Pollinators Enhance Fruit Set of Crops Regardless of

Therefore insect pollinators appear not to be limited by crop floral resources but crop yield was commonly pollen-limited as crops set more fruit in fields with more visitation by pollinators () Contrary to the fourth prediction fruit set increased with flower-visitor richness independently of honey bee visitation (fig S11)

Ecological intensification increases farm yield research

Creating wildlife habitats by removing up to 8% of agricultural land from production has little effect on - and can even increase - crop yield new research from the Centre of Ecology Hydrology shows The experimental study published in the Royal Society's Proceedings B journal provides the first direct evidence for the ecological intensification of agricultural systems an approach that

Pollination by bats enhances both quality and yield of a

However the importance of bats as pollinators has been overlooked with a consequent lack of knowledge of the reliance of crops on bats for harvest yield and quality We used exclusion experiments to determine the effect of different pollinator taxa on the yield and quality of pitayas (fruit of Stenocereus queretaroensis (F A C Weber) Buxbaum) a major crop in central Mexico

Enhancing Crop Yield Through Wild Pollinators

He says deliberate physical importation of single species (eg European honey bees) into crop fields for pollination remains the mainstream management approach and implementation of practices to enhance crop yield (production per area) through wild insects is

Polycultures and pollinators: Does crop diversity promote

Preliminary results indicate that crop diversity increases yield in C pepo and decreases visitation to S lycopersicum F ananassa and H annus However these decreases in visitation did not significantly decrease yield below that of the same plants in monoculture suggesting that bees in polyculture may be more efficient pollinators

3 Ways to Boost Pollination

Chives thyme lavender and oregano will really help draw in pollinators as well as providing a crop of tasty herbs Underplant with snowdrops crocus squill and other bulbs Annual flowers such as poached egg plant and marigolds are easy to grow among your vegetables wherever you have room and will help get your pollinators right to where you need them

Plant biodiversity enhances bees and other insect pollinators in

around crop fields can improve habitat for domestic and wild bees as well as other insects and thus enhance pollination services in agroecosystems Main findings are the following: (1) certain weed species within crop fields that provide food resources and refuge

Pollination contribution to crop yield is often context

Current management strategies to enhance pollinators might fail to increase pollination benefits in landscapes characterized by poor soil resources or ineffective pest control We propose that our understanding of the effects of crop-pollinator interactions will benefit by focusing on plant traits and physiological responses

A diverse and abundant pollinator community is needed to maintain stable and high quality crop

— Insect pollinators are important for crop production maintaining and improving the yield and quality of many fruit and vegetable crops worldwide including the apples strawberries raspberries cherries beans and oilseed rape grown in the UK

Companion planting to attract pollinators increases the

Companion planting is a traditional gardening practice designed to improve crop yield by attracting pollinators and other beneficial insects After developing a simple citizen science methodology to investigate this practice we have shown that companion planting strawberry plants with pollinator‐friendly borage increases the crop yield and the market quality of strawberry fruits

Global growth and stability of agricultural yield decrease

Each crop was categorized following Klein et al into one of five pollinator-dependence classes: none (no yield reduction without pollinators 39 crops) little (yield reduction without pollinators 0 but 10% 20 crops) modest (10–39% reduction 16 crops

Crop production in the USA is frequently limited by a lack

However a decline in pollinators will only affect crop yield if yield is limited by a lack of pollination Research on pollinator limitation or the degree to which a lack of pollinators is restricting full seed or fruit production has focused mainly on wild plant species [ 7 – 8 ] with little information available about the frequency or circumstances in which pollination limits crop
