Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to record the succession of pollinators/visitors on Niger crops grown under different dates of sowing during Kharif 2021 and 2022. Among the pollinators visited on Niger flowers the giant honey bee, Apis dorsata was the most dominant pollinators, Hoverfly, Eristalinus megacephalus was the second most dominant pollinator species recorded on Niger flowers. Among the pollinators the highest occurrence of Indian honey bee, Apis ceranaindica, European honey bee, Apis mellifera, violet carpenter bee, Xylocopa Violaceaa and hoverfly, Eristalinus megacephalus were observed from the Ist date of sowing, (15th July) however the highest visit of the giant honey bee, Apis dorsata and rice skipper, Parnara guttatus were recorded from the crop sown at 25th August. Among the recorded pollinators, the longest succession period (43 days) under all the dates sown crop was observed for Apis cerana indica, Apis mellifera, Apis florea, Apis dorsata, Eristalinus megacephalus and Parnara guttatus while the lowest succession period (8 days) was observed for Xylocopa Violaceaa and Zizina Otis.
