I have come across a farmer about 5 miles away with about 15 acres of canola planted and I would like to see if I can get some colonies there in the spring. I believe bees could enhance the yield up to 20% so there could be some mutual benefit for myself and the farmer involved. I would also have to consider any spraying of fungicide or insecticide . So can any of you guys that work canola enlighten me a little on the pitfalls I might encounter. I believe that 1 colony per acre would be the minimum required so I would be prepared to put out about 15 colonies and see what honey could be gained from this exercise. Any helpful advice would be appreciated.
