Abstract:
Kiwifruit is a dioecious vine which requires a male vine to pollinate a female vine for the female vine to produce fruits. It is difficult to pollinate due to the flowers are not a good source of nectar and less attractive to insect pollinators. Various insect pollinators of three orders were reported that pollinate the Kiwifruit flowers in the Solan region of Himachal Pradesh. Six plant families were visited by Bombus haemorrhoidalis Smith for nectar and pollen grains at locations ranging from 1275 to 1555 meters above mean sea level. Our results highlight the important contribution of insect pollinators to the kiwifruit pollination and flora of bumblebee.
