Re: Industrial Beekeeper
Basic rule of business WLC. If there's a demand, and it pays enough, someone will fill it.
Let's see first if your prophecy re the beans comes true though.
Surprising as it must be to those who get their beekeeping information from the sensationalist branches of the news media, increasing hive numbers is easily accomplished by commercial beekeepers if they want to do that. The only limiting factor really, is money. So if the soybean guys pay right, more hives will materialise.
