Differential bee visitation to male sterile and fertile lines in pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.)



Differential bee visitation to male sterile and fertile lines in pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.)



Journal of Research ANGRAU 27(4): 26-28



The pattern of insect visitation to male sterile and male fertile lines of 3 commercially important pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) hybrids was studied in Karnataka, India, during March 1996. The hybrids were derived from the parental lines 841 A/B and 81 A/B. Cerana bees (Apis cerana indica) were the predominant visitors, followed by melipona bees (Melipona iridepennis and rock bees (A. dorsata).
