Depends on the hybrid!Hi,
I've was offered a chance to place hives in 5 acres of sunflowers. Does anyone know if 5 acres of sunflowers is enough forage area to make it worthwhile to move bees into?
Like I said above. "Depends on the hybrid!: Some times we have made zilch and other years 80 lbs.... I just stay away now!!!!!!! Not worth the loss with the bees so valuable for packages and almonds.They are not, it's planted for hunters.......doves specifically. I'm now wondering if it's worth doing at all. Does anyone know how much nectar SF would produce?
