Pollination Process through Bee Mesh

Pollen transportation can occur through three fundamental vectors: wind, water, animals. In the latter case, pollen transportation is entrusted to pollinating animals, among which bees are prominent. Plant flowers are often brightly colored, with showy inflorescences. They emit perfumes also have adaptations that facilitate contact with reproductive organs.

Many are equip with nectaries, tissues, or specialize organs that produce nectar. Depending on the type of pollination, different production of hormonal growth regulators is verified. Bee pollination is the one that most positively impacts crop yield. Often bees are place to optimize pollination in protected environments. To prevent them from getting lost outside the greenhouse structure, using pollination netting is recommended.

Natural Pollination Bags with Pollination Netting

We also provide practical Pollination Bags that allow sunlight and water penetration while protecting against adverse seasonal weather. It is recommend to place them over the flower and tie them at the bottom. When the time is right for pollination, the bags can be easily open. After manual pollination, the bag is close with a simple tie or clip.

The ABEMALLA® pollination netting increases productivity by favoring insect-mediated pollination

Bee pollination improves crop quality, lifespan, and commercial value

Bee pollination contributes to a third of global crop production. In fact, more than 75% of the world’s 115 leading crop species depend on, or at least benefit from, animal pollination. Conversely, wind and self-pollination are sufficient for only 28 crop species. Recent studies have shown that bee pollination enhances the yield of most crop species. Bee pollination improves fruit quality, quantity, and market value compared to wind and self-pollination.

Fruits pollinated by bees are heavier, have fewer deformities, also achieve higher commercial grades. They have a greater reddening and a reduction in the sugar-acid ratio. Additionally, they are firmer. Consequently, their lifespan is extend with a reduction in fruit loss of at least 11%. The results obtain in a strawberry crop study can be transfer to a wide range of crops. Thus, it is demonstrate that bee pollination is a vital and economically important factor, crucial for fruit quality. The impacts on crop quantity, quality, lifespan, and market value have been assessed. The ABEMALLA® pollination netting increases bee activity by keeping pollinating insects inside greenhouses or microtunnels.

Influence of Bee Pollination on Commercial Value: Increased Fruit Weight and Commercial Grade

Bee pollination has resulted in strawberries with the highest commercial value. On average, bee pollination increases the commercial value per fruit by 38.6% compared to wind pollination, and by 54.3% compared to self-pollination. The price and marketing of strawberries depend on the commercial grades of fruit quality (shape, size, and color). Deformities, in particular, are a common problem affecting the price and marketing of strawberries. Bee pollination reduces deformities and, therefore, improves marketing in almost all varieties examined.

Compared to wind and self-pollination, bee pollination not only improves fruit shape but also fruit weight. Fruits pollinated by bees are on average 11.0% heavier than those pollinated by wind and 30.3% heavier than self-pollinated fruits. Bee pollination strongly impacts the shelf life of strawberries by improving their firmness.

The firmness values of each treatment and variety are related to shelf life. This is measure as the number of days until 50% of the fruit is lost due to surface decomposition and fungi. Ultimately, greater firmness resulting from bee pollination potentially extends the shelf life of strawberry fruits. Therefore, bee pollination represents a decrease of at least 11.0% in fruit losses during storage. The ABEMALLA® pollination netting facilitates and optimizes the pollination process by insects.

Improved Postharvest Quality in Bee-Pollinated Crops

In most varieties, fruits pollinated by bees have a more intense red color compared to fruits resulting from wind and self-pollination. Therefore, bee pollination results in bright fruits with a more intense red color. In conclusion, bee pollination, mainly conducted by solitary wild bees, plays a key role in determining various characteristics—quantity and quality—of strawberry fruits.

Bee-pollinated fruits show fewer deformities, higher fruit weight, and a longer shelf life. This implies higher commercial value also better postharvest quality with a more intense red color and a lower sugar-acid ratio. The conclusions of this study highlight the great importance of animal pollination.

Cross-pollination, unlike self-pollination, increases fruit size and accelerates ripening in ‘Sharpblue’ blueberry cultivation

Study of the Effects of Self-Pollination and Cross-Pollination on Fruit Development in Southern Blueberries (mainly Vaccinium corymbosum L.)

Results: Cross-pollination increases fruit size by 14% and seed number by 27%, but influences fruiting.

  • Cross-pollination increases the percentage of early maturing fruit harvest by ≈140% and premium market fruits (≥ 0.75 g) by 13% and decreases the percentage of small fruits by 66%. Consequently, a 43% increase in initial premium crop value results from optimizing cross-pollination.
  • The ABEMALLLA pollination netting, by preventing pollinating insects from leaving the exterior, efficiently controls the pollination process.

Pollination Netting in Coffee Cultivation

Coffee crop production increases with the diversity of pollinating bees

The global decline of pollinators can negatively affect the overall yield of wild and cultivated plant fruits. This study demonstrates that Coffea arabica production is highly variable and related to bee pollination.

Bee pollination contributes to crop well-being and provides economic benefits for the producer such as increased yield and better grain quality.

  • Increased productivity with a higher number of grains per plant. Cross-pollination contributes to increasing productivity by 20 to 25%.
  • Increased fruit and seed size and weight.
  • Better quality, flavor, and aroma of the grain, more intense thanks to a higher concentration of sugars, or brix degrees.

Using mesh protection systems for pest management is an alternative to chemical control methods also favors the pollinator population.

The use of meshes to protect crops against hail, wind, and birds is becoming increasingly popular among fruit producers.

Now we offer a specific product to stimulate natural pollination.

The mesh should be install so that the ends or sides can be easily lift during flowering to aid pollination.

Bee pollination increases the quantity and quality of commercial crops

Interactions between flowering plants and their pollinators are a key component of biodiversity. Pollination, especially by insects, is a key element in ecosystem functioning. Therefore, it constitutes a globally important ecosystem service. Not only does it guarantee the sexual reproduction of plants,. But it also stabilizes yields and maintains the genetic variability of crops. This counteracts inbreeding depression and facilitates system resilience.

  • A study on cotton and sesame crops in Burkina Faso shows the contribution of bee pollinators to the production of major commercial crops.
  • Wild bee pollination significantly increases yield quantity and quality by an average of up to 62%.
  • Conversely, pollinator exclusion causes an average yield gap of 37% in cotton and 59% in sesame.
  • Furthermore, self-pollination reveals inbreeding depression effects on fruiting and low germination rates.

The role of bees and pollinators for agriculture and human health with Pollination Mesh

Insect pollination of flowering plants is a process of great importance in terrestrial environments and provides vital ecosystem services for human well-being, such as crop production. Around 75% of agricultural crop species depend, to some extent, on animal pollination. About a third benefit from cross-pollination by developing a greater quantity and/or quality of fruit. Among other insects, bees are know as one of the most important pollinator groups in the world.

To meet the growing demand for food, agriculture has become much more intensive. Fertilizers, pesticides, and the development of new plant varieties have allowed farmers to increase the average food yield. Agriculture and human health depend on the ecosystem services provided by wild organisms. Among them, bees and other pollinators for pollinating crops.

Modern agriculture threatens to eradicate pollinating organisms

Around 75% of all crop species require pollination by animals of some kind, often by bees, but sometimes by flies, butterflies, birds, or even bats. Part of the pollination is performed by domesticated bees. However, most of the pollination of most crops is carried out by wild insects, including many species of wild bees, such as bumblebees.

Pollinator animals fly to our fields to pollinate crops from surrounding wild areas. However, if there are no wild areas, or if crops are sprayed with insecticides, pollination will suffer, and yields will decrease. Where crops are grown in vast fields, there are not enough insects for all. If insecticides are sprayed too frequently, vital pollinators cannot survive. The practice of pollination netting helps increase populations of natural predators, decreasing the need for pesticides. Bees get trapped under the mesh and perform the pollination process more efficiently.
