Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted at vegetable seed production unit, Division of vegetable Science, Shuhama campus, SKUAST-Kashmir during 2014-15 on leafy vegetables viz., knol kohl and kale crops. The pollinator fauna of both the vegetables were collected and studied for their foraging ecology and behaviour during the study period. There are various threats to pollinator diversity in modern agriculture. Our focus was to record the insect diversity under present scenario. The collected pollinators/visitors of knoll khol and kale were identified and total of 15 insect pollinators/visitors belonging to orders and families of class insect were recorded from knoll khol bloom while as 17 insect pollinators/visitors belonging to orders and 10 families were recorded from kale bloom. Among all pollinator, Hymenopterans were most predominant contributing 91.64% of total pollinators on knoll khol and 90.04% of total pollinators on kale.
