An analysis on factors influencing government supported bumble bees use as pollinators by greenhouse producers' in the Mediterranean Coastal Region of Turkey

Abstract: The main objective of this study was to determine the factors affecting the government supported bumble bees use as pollinators by greenhouse producers in the Mediterranean Coastal Region of Turkey. The data used in this study were collected from growers by using a face to face survey. To this end, data was obtained by using simple random sampling method in 80 greenhouse farms in Antalya province. The data were analyzed with the chi-square test which was used to test relationship between variables. The result of the analyses showed that there is a significant relationship between the farms using and non-using bumble bee, considering status registered for greenhouse of farmer, type of growing, type of greenhouse ventilation and the number of people working in greenhouse. Furthermore, the most of farmers believed that use of bumble bees as pollinators in greenhouse tomato production is beneficial. These benefits include the effect of environment and human health and also the economic (marketing, higher price, higher yield, reducing pesticide use and labor use).
