EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Mason bees: from A to Z.
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?:Mason bees, on the other hand, pollinate at lower temperatures and can improve pollination rates.
