What is the fruit of a buckeye tree? _____The fruit of the TALLARD’S BUCKEYE, according to some of you, could be whiskey, but I’m calling bullshit! The real answer, and quite possibly the first response the prophet would have, is: bee pollen! Bee pollen is pollen, but it is produced in huge amounts by the bee for its honey.

Why is it important?

There are two kinds of pollen—the wind-blown (or floating) pollen which covers a very large surface area, and the sterile flower pollen which sticks to the pistil or the stamen.

The reason pollen is important is that without pollen there can be no reproduction. This is true for plants which produce pollen via wind-blown or self-pollinated methods, and especially in trees.

Here’s how it works:

Trees tend to flower at the end of the year in order to use the pollinators’ energy reserves and prepare themselves for winter, since flowering is the most critical and energetically expensive stage of their life cycle. In the spring, a tree’s flowers produce many seeds. But the female reproductive organs – the stamen, style, and ovaries – are responsible for the pollen, which grows inside the style and must be transferred to the stamen. (from Nature.com)

Flowering during the autumn period is beneficial to a plant’s reproduction, not only because the tree uses the pollinators’ energy reserves but also because the drop in temperatures allows it to pass into dormancy, which would not be possible otherwise.

So, winter is a critical time to the tree. To save up their energy, and increase the likelihood of re-emerging the next spring, trees spend a long time in a state of dormancy, and even longer at hibernation, by going through the metabolic process of entering deep sleep.

Let’s add that there are some trees that flower in early fall and the majority of trees flower late fall. This, for the most part, is due to the geography of their growing areas.

Harvests and Revolutions

Mast crops grow at different rates than the prevailing seasonal patterns (from Freshproduce.com)

The producer or the system of market dominance grows and sells the product in bulk. In the case of most fruit trees, it’s usually in the form of a “Mast,” or a single harvest.

Mast

The system of Market Dominance. The producer grows most of the product of the farm and sells it for a price set at the beginning of the season or by commission. A prominent example of this is the almond crop.

What is the future of Mast? I see mast crops collapsing very soon. So we have to create new ways of marketing and funding agriculture. For this we will need to define new markets, and design innovative ways of selling into them.

So, our first response is bee pollen. Let’s look into some of the potential benefits:

Bees Are Vital To Our Global Economy

As of 2011, honey bees, known for their role in pollinating crops, accounted for $15.6 billion in crop pollination services, a U.S. Department of Agriculture study found.

The USDA estimates that honey bees pollinate more than $20 billion worth of food crops in the United States alone every year. (from Honeybee Sanctuary.org)

On a larger scale, between 1996 and 2006, honey bee pollination services worth $16 billion in U.S. crops. In 2010, honey bee pollination services worth $34.4 billion in crops, USDA says.

Meanwhile, USDA estimates the global agricultural value of honey bees pollinating crops at between $20 billion and $100 billion annually.

Bee Pollination is Key to the Sustainable Future of Agriculture.

In January 2013, the United Nations food and agriculture organization identified pollination as key to food security, sustainability and global economic stability.

“Unless we manage and improve the world’s pollination services, including those provided by bees, other pollinating insects, and other animals, food security will be threatened,” said Cristiana Pașca Palmer, the U.N. Undersecretary General for Agricultural and Social Affairs in a statement.

What can we do to help?

Can we market our own bee pollen to supermarkets and other places which sell food products?

We can produce a lot of bee pollen

We can diversify our crop varieties, because we can try to find trees with more high quality pollen.

All of this is going to take time and a lot of hard work. And all of this needs a lot of money.

However, what we can do now is to find other options, as well.

You’ll start your local Friends of the Farmer’s Markets, and the beginning of your local Farmers Market or Local Produce Meets.

Aangesien dit blyk dat die meeste mense in die landbou deesdae bye hou, moet ons dink oor wat ons kan doen om hierdie insekte te help?

Ek het hierdie wonderlike YouTube-video gevind, en hierdie een.

Byestuifmeel is jou vriend in jou gewastuin

Vrugte en gewasse benodig stuifmeel vir bevrugting. Stuifmeel is die belangrikste bestanddeel vir vrugte en groente opbrengste. Vrugte en groente word in 'n vegetatiewe toestand sonder die stuifmeel geproduseer.

Want hulle het groot geword
