Re: 2000 Acres of Hemp Project
You need people that are familiar with the local plants. One of the local beekeepers you are hiring should be the expert you are looking for as to what to plant.
Bees prefer to stay within 2-3 miles. Closer the better. The further out they have to go, the faster they will die from beating their wings to tatters. The shape of the field will help determine the position of the hives. Mono-culture fields usually ship in bees for the pollination season and then the bees are moved to another area.
