‘Pollination crisis’ hitting India’s vegetable farmers

A decline in pollinating insects in India is resulting in reduced vegetable yields and could limit people’s access to a nutritional diet, a study warns.

Indian researchers said there was a “clear indication” that pollinator abundance was linked to productivity.They added that the loss of the natural service could have a long-term impact on the farming sector, which accounts for almost a fifth of the nation’s GDP.Globally, pollination is estimated to be worth £141bn $224bn each year.
