Hybrid canola pollination requires nearly 2 hives per acre. Pleasant Valley Honey contracts with canola seed production facilities in Southern Alberta and local farms for production crops.
From a recent Canadian Honey Council report:
Canola is a Canadian success story. This oilseed crop has brought prosperity to many canola growers in the prairies. Over the last few years it has also contributed to an unprecedented growth in the number of honey bee colonies for pollination of hybrid seed canola.
Give us a call if you feel your crop yields would increase from having bees set on your farm fields.
