wildflowers (pictured here) and rapini mustard.

Lack of alternative forage is often cited as one of the causes of decline in honey bee health. Planting a bee forage cover crop is one way to enhance honey bee health through nutrition.

Growers are invited to attend a field day hosted by Project Apis m. to view various plants in a demonstration bee pasture, and to learn more about the benefits of planting a bee forage cover crop. The event will be held April 26, 1:30 p.m., at the Capay Ranch in Hamilton City. Topics to be covered are:

  • Choosing the proper seed
  • Ground preparation
  • Planting methods
  • Weed control

RSVP to the event by sending an email to ProjectApis@gmail.com.
