Answer the following :

Are insects friends of farmers? Explain.

Answer :

i) Yes, insects are friends of farmers as they help in the process of plant reproduction.


ii) Insects carry out cross-pollination by transferring the pollen grains from the anthers of the flowers on one plant to the stigma of the flowers on another plant.


iii) The colours of the flowers and the aromatic smell gave out by the nectar of the flowers attract the insects to come and feed on the nectar of these flowers.


iv) While the insects feed, the pollen grains get stuck on them and when these insects move from one flower to another, the pollen grains get transferred.


v) This helps in sexual reproduction and more plants are produced which is beneficial to the farmers.
