Uzbekistan fruits and coronavirus – another unexpected problem could worsen crop prospects

Now in Uzbekistan, fruit orchards are actively blooming, which require pollination by bees

According to EastFruit specialists from Uzbekistan, gardeners in this country have a problem with pollination of fruit trees. This problem is caused by strict quarantine, which does not allow beekeepers, especially near large cities, to take care of bees.

Since any trips on any transport are prohibited, many beekeepers cannot get to their apiaries, which are far enough from their place of residence. Even if they manage to get there on foot, they cannot physically bring with them everything they need to care for the bees. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that not all beekeepers have officially registered apiaries.

Also now in Uzbekistan, fruit orchards are actively blooming, which require pollination by bees, as well as plantations of melons and vegetables. However, beekeepers cannot deliver an apiary to a garden or field. And those apiaries that were previously placed in the gardens, it is often difficult to transport to other places after its flowering. Accordingly, the bees do not have the necessary honey plants, and the prospects for harvesting fruits, melons and vegetables are reduced from insufficient pollination. In addition, insufficient pollination can adversely affect the quality of fruits and vegetables.

Beekeepers report that some of the bee families may simply be lost due to inadequate care and starvation. The production of honey and related products may also decline. Therefore, they turned to the government with a request to solve this urgent problem. Indeed, in addition to cultivated vegetables and fruits, bees pollinate a large number of wild plants, as well as cotton, sunflower and other industrial crops grown in Uzbekistan.
