Pollination problems in hybrid onion seed production using honey bees



Pollination problems in hybrid onion seed production using honey bees



Proceedings of the Fourth International Symposium on Pollination, Maryland 1978: 65-72



Interplanting male-fertile onions in male-sterile rows did not consistently increase bee visits to male-sterile onions (75% of all marked bees were found on male-fertile onions), nor were seed yields significantly higher. Bees marked while gathering pollen on sweet corn 1 m away did not visit onions, and bees marked on onions did not visit sweet corn.
