          Abstract

          This chapter introduces the background and theory underpinning use of odours by insects in pollination, discusses how flowers produce odours and highlights issues specific to crops such as selective breeding. It then explores current technologies and case studies in which natural or synthetic odours on or near the crop, and the interaction with insects, influences visitation, pollination success and yield.
