Pollinators are the prime facie to maintain the diversity in universe. Hence, research on “Studies on pollinators of muskmelon (Cucumis melo Linnaeus)” was carried out at Chimanbhai Patel College of Agriculture, SD Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar during summer 2021. The mode of pollination had a highly significant effect on the quantitative and qualitative parameters of muskmelon. The mean percent fruit set, weight of fruit (kg), the volume of fruit (liter), length of fruit (cm), girth of fruit (cm), number of seeds per fruit and total soluble solid (%) in open and close pollination were 15.76 % and 10.52 %, 0.74 kg and 0.39 kg, 0.71 liters and 0.38 liter, 11.43 cm and 9.10 cm, 37.06 cm and 28.42 cm, 557.53 seeds and 401.30 seeds and 10.02 % and 8.66 %, respectively. These results indicated that pollinators are highly influenced the production of muskmelon
