Honeybee pollination and seed production of red clover



Honeybee pollination and seed production of red clover



Selektsiya i Semenovodstvo (4): 48-49



Recommendations for using honeybee colonies to pollinate Trifolium pratense include: time moving the hives to precisely when blossoming begins; distribute the hives in groups in such a way that no bees have to fly more than 250-300 m; train the bees to the scent of red clover by feeding each day with 50% sugar syrup in which a third of the volume of ripe clover heads have been soaked when hot - oil of aniseed or of bergamot added to the syrup in the early stages of training may help.J.
