    Default What is pollination on shares?

    Had someone send me an email said looking for some pollination in ND for Canola on shares.

    What does this mean?

    My translating is a little rusty. Does it mean dead bees from treated GMO stuff for way too little money? Not sure.

    Does it mean they would like to share the honey instead of fee for pollination?

    I'm betting you get a percentage of the canola.

    If you're going to do it this way, be sure to indicate a minimum amount of honey that will be "shared". If for some reason the minimum is not met, then there should be a financial payment to you. There is no easier way to get screwed than signing on for a share then told "the crop didn't pan out" for whatever reason.

    You can't be serious?? Payment made to the bee owner?!? I would say the first 50 lbs goes to the honey producer then the next 50 goes to the bee owner. Any remaining is split. If you send junk that doesn't make the first 50 then you would own the honey producer. Trucking and feed costs will be paid by bee owner.
