Summary

In this video, Clémence Boutry of FiBL Switzerland introduces the most important mason bee species for fruit growing and shows how their cocoons are correctly deployed.


Summary translation

Eine gute Bestäubung mit leistungsfähigen Bestäubern ist eine Voraussetzung für regelmässige und qualitativ gute Erträge in landwirtschaftlichen Kulturen, insbesondere im Obstbau.
Aber: Die Bestäubungsleistung der Honigbiene ist bei früh blühenden Obstarten und kühler Witterung oft ungenügend. Hummeln und Mauerbienen bestäuben hingegen schon bei tieferen Temperaturen.
In intensiv bewirtschafteten Obstanlagen sind diese natürlichen Bestäuber jedoch häufig zu wenig zahlreich, weil ihnen Nahrung und Lebensraum fehlen. Vor allem aber auch, weil ihnen der Zugang durch Witterungsschutzsysteme verwehrt ist. Clémence Boutry vom FiBL Schweiz stellt in diesem Video die wichtigsten Mauerbienenarten für den Obstbau vor und zeigt wie ihre Kokons korrekt ausgebracht werden.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Good pollination with efficient pollinators is a prerequisite for regular and high-quality yields in agricultural crops, especially in fruit growing.
What problem does the tool address?:The pollination performance of the honey bee is often insufficient in early flowering fruit species and cool weather. In intensively managed orchards, however, natural pollinators are often too few in number because they lack food and habitat. In particular, they are denied access by weather protection systems.
What solution does the tool offer?:Bumblebees and mason bees, on the other hand, pollinate at lower temperatures and can improve pollination rates.
