Lucerne (Medicago sativa). Investigations relative to pollination and seed-production in New Zealand



N.Z.J. Sci. Tech 17: 577-94



Tripping is shown to be a pre-requisite to seed-production. Artificial tripping has aided seed-production under open pollination in the ratio of 1: 1.5 and under cages in the ratio of 1: 2.8. Trials are described by which the efficacy of different species of bees as pollinating agents has been determined on a basis of seed production. Bombus terrestris is proved to be very effective as a tripping and pollinating agent.
