I asked a local beekeeper what i could plant now for my honeybees. I have about 4 acres available. He told me that the purple bloom variety of soybeans is a good plant for honeybees. He said the white variety doesn't do as well. I can plant beans through the month of May in north Alabama.

Anyone know what I should ask for at the local Co-Op?

I have asked my local extension agent but he can't find an answer.
