Pollinators boost seed production most

Press/Media: Research

Description

Pollinators such as bumblebees are the most important production factor in the cultivation of leek seed, not fertilizer or water. This finding comes from PhD candidate Thijs Fijen. Growers
therefore need to make sure their farmland attracts wild pollinators.
