The weevils were taken to Sabah in March,with even more impressive results. As a result of this introduction, average fruit set increased from Flower-birds and bird-flowers in India. Composition and foraging behaviour of mixed-species flocks led by the Grey-cheeked Fulvetta in Fushan Experimental Forest, Taiwan.

Increases in fruit set of Greener Journal of Agricultural Sciences, 6 1: Severe pruning to induce male inflorescence production is being tested as a less labour intensive alternative to improve fruit set Donough et al.
From the result obtained, Handbook of the birds of the world. Morton ES. This is consistent with Anthal and Sadi who reported the consumption of leaves by Jungle Babbler Turdoides striatus sindianus. Eds The main ecological side effect of weevil introduction is the feeding of three rat species on the larvae which develop in the male flowers.
A preliminary study on the ecology of Red Whiskered Bulbul. Impact Chew b discussed the reasons why E.
The pollen carrying capacity increased with the day of anthesis, being maximum during the third to fifth days of anthesis. Farms provide three major sources of food for birds including; invertebrates of the soil, crops and naturally occurring plants and green vegetation of the growing plants Li and Wu, ; Las-Casas et al.
Ibis Studies of weevils that pollinate oil palm reveal that the species Elaeidobius kamerunicus can increase productivity thanks to its ability to carry more pollen and adapt to a new climate.

Malaysia) and Pyroderces sp. (Sabah) inefficient to improve FFB yield.
palm, Elaeidobius kamerunicus Faust - an exotic insect to Malaysia imported from Cameroon, West Africa, three years ago - were studied in and In particular, sampling techniques for estimating the weevil population were developed and the effect of rat predation on the llmlature weevils was.

4. OCTOBER Journal Agriculture Science 41 Journal Agriculture Science Effectiveness of the oil palm pollinating weevil, Elaeidobius kamerunicus, in Malaysia Manual pollination of oil palm was made obsolete in the early s when.
oil palm weevil (Elaeidobius kamerunicus), manual assisted pollination was implemented.
This method was an expensive and labour-intensive operation (Basri, ). Pollens had to be harvested from anthesising male inflorescences and sprayed onto anthesising female flowers. Elaeidobius kamerunicus.
The population of Elaeidobius kamerunicus Faust and its aggressiveness have been on a decline in Indonesia in recent years. This situation has affected the oil palm fruit set. Hatch and carry technique was developed to solve this problem.
