Honeybee pollination of sunflower cultivars Hysun 30 and Sunfola



Honeybee pollination of sunflower cultivars Hysun 30 and Sunfola



Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 21: 435-438



On an irrigated field of Hysun 30 provided with 5-6 colonies of honeybees/ha, seed yield by weight was 11% higher than on plots caged to exclude bees and other large insects. Honeybees did not collect pollen from the flowers, and bees were often seen cleaning pollen from their bodies and discarding it; only a little sunflower pollen was taken into hives. On the Sunfola, there were no significant differences in seed yields on plots at different distances (up to 300 m) from honeybee colonies.
