Role of pollination and pollinators in vegetable production


Author(s): Priyambada Pradhan, P Mahapatra and Priyanka Nayak

Abstract: Pollination plays a crucial role in crop production. It is a typical process whereby pollen is transported from anther to stigma of a flower. As a consequence fruit develops and a seed born. Pollinator is a biotic agent which transfers pollens from male to female part. 75% of the total cultivated plants grown around the world are pollinated by biotic agents. Only bees, bats and birds affect 35% of the crop production worldwide. Among them fruits and vegetables are the most benefitted items. But now-a-days the pollinator population is decreasing at a faster rate. If such scenario continues, then much of the food we eat today would not be available in the future. Therefore, is it necessary to understand and to conserve the pollinator population and their habitat to establish a healthy ecosystem.
