    Default Honey Production vs. Pollenation services

    I have recently heard that the total US income for pollination services and that of honey production is very close, and that pollination services may actually have brought in slightly more dollars this past year. Can anyone verify that, and is there a report that can be cited. I am not a commercial beekeeper but I thought that this forum might be the right one for this question. I'm just trying to do a little personal research.

    There are many different variations of commercial beekeeping. Every region in the US has a general guideline and within each region each beekeeper does things different.

    I think for the typical northern midwest beekeeper pollination and honey are fairly close incomes. However management plays a big roll in the outcome of each number.
