Nectar sources for honey bees and the movement of honey bee colonies for crop pollination and honey production in England



Nectar sources for honey bees and the movement of honey bee colonies for crop pollination and honey production in England



Bee World 74(4): 160-175



This article presents information obtained through a survey of beekeepers (1984-86), and the records of some beekeepers' associations, on the movement of honey bee colonies to crops for honey production or pollination, and on the plants from which beekeepers believe their bees obtain most nectar.
