I don't think the cotton varieties here make nectar.
Yep, self fertile varieties aren't producing nectar like they used to.Historically, I've gotten big yields off cotton. Last year was a terrible year for cotton and now again this year the cotton simply isn't producing as expected. I'm still hopeful that this year will turn and we'll fill some boxes. Perhaps there's been a change in type of cotton planted.
I can see plenty of bees in the cotton, but supers are not filling like I'd expect. We got a huge rain yesterday, and temps will be close to 90 this weekend. If these conditions don't result in nectar, then nothing will. I'm going to talk with my farmer to see if he has changed seed in the last 2 years.Yep, self fertile varieties aren't producing nectar like they used to.
