Measurements of cucumber and soybean pollination efficiency by honey bees hived in a prototypic pollination unit



Measurements of cucumber and soybean pollination efficiency by honey bees hived in a prototypic pollination unit



Research Circular, Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (295): 38-41



Bee colonies in expanded polystyrene foam hives, supered standard control hives (colony weight limited) and unsupered standard control hives (colony allowed to reach full strength) were tested in a 13.6 ha commercial Poinsette cucumber field. The supered controls were the most active pollen foragers (8.7 pollen foragers returning per minute). Foam-housed and unsupered colonies averaged 6.2 and 3.6 bees/minute.
