Flowering plants require insects for pollination. The most effective is the honeybee, which pollinates 90% of commercial crops worldwide. As well as most fruits and vegetables they pollinate nuts, sunflowers and oil-seed rape. Coffee, soya beans, clovers – like alfafa, which is used for cattle feed – and even cotton are all dependent on bee pollination to increase yields. This is why this reportis very disturbing for us at least.
