Impact of pollination frequency of Apis dorsata Fabricius on cucumber fruits
NP Trivedi, DB Sisodiya and MD Aniyaliya
The present study was conducted to evaluate the impact of pollination frequency of giant honey bee, Apis dorsata Fabricius on qualitative as well as quantitative parameters of cucumber fruits. The results show that various parameters viz., total number of fruits; circumference, length and weight of fruits as well as fruit yield measured higher in open pollinated and the plots managed with five visits by A. dorsata. All these parameters found to escalate proportionately with increase in number of visits by A. dorsata. The minimum per cent of malformed fruits were bore in open as well as five times pollinated plots.
