LANDSCAPE POLLINATION MANAGEMENT OF RHOPHITOIDES CANUS Ev. (HYMENOPTERA, APOIDDEA, HALICTIDAE) IN SEED PRODUCTION OF ALFALFA (MEDICAGO SATIVA L.)

V. Ptácek, J. Rotrekl
Main points of R. canus management as pollinating agent in alfalfa large scale seed production are shown on a video record, which was made for educational purposes. The agronomy and plant protection measures were harmonised with the wild bee nesting activity to achieve the durable increase of R. canus population in the seed producing areas and the consequent stabilisation of economical seed yields. Some practical remarks and history of the project are presented.
