Hello Beesource Community!
I live in Suriname, South America, and recently came into possession of about 1 hectare of pasture.
I'd like to start keeping bees in on that property but it's currently covered in a species of grass that grows to over waist high. I won't be able to mow it using machinery because my bees are Africanized bees and get VERY pissy at loud noise and vibrations.
I'm hoping someone can suggest a way to replace that grass with another ground cover plant that will require less maintenance (this grass grows incredibly fast) or some other way to keep the field manageable without frequent mowing.
The area is improved swampland. Well drained and fertile. The previous owner mowed biweekly and also used some controlled burns every dry season to manage the field.
I'm not sure what other info would be useful but I'm happy to answer any questions that can help.
