Pollination by two species of flower thrips in six Solanaceous plants (four perennials and two seasonal) were studied. The results highlight the role of thrips in both self and cross pollination of these flowers. The findings also suggest that in view of the stigmatic surface in all the flowers being at a higher level than the anthers, there is more entomophily. Data relating to the population dynamics of thrips as well as the pollen load of thrips are also included.

The vector role of thrips in pollinating several fabaceous flowers has been studied. The flowring phenology showed a coincidence with the life cycle of the thrips species. The population dynamics of the thrips, crop-weed dispersal, the pollen carrying efficiency and the percentage of pod set are discussed.
