Blueberry pollination in New Jersey


, : Blueberry pollination in New Jersey. Acta Horticulturae 61: 175-186

Observations on bee populations in blueberry fields showed that, because of the use of insecticides and destruction of nesting sites, wild bees constituted only a small percentage of foragers; growers were almost entirely dependent on honeybees for pollination. Honeybees preferred the blueberry varieties which produced the most nectar, but visits to flowers of attractive varieties were shorter than to those of unattractive varieties.
