Increase yield with abundant pollination
Pollination with honey bees that are placed at the right time is a sustainable way to increase the yield.
Wild bees, bumblebees and resident beehives count as background pollination as it is not certain that they will pollinate your desired crop when it is most needed.
When the desired crop has started to flower to 20-25%, we place the beehives. The time when the bees are placed is very important as honey bees are always flower faithful, which means they pollinate the same flowers until they have finished blooming.
Increased pollination provides high germination, more even harvest, higher quality and increased yield.
Rapeseed have a higher oil content and lower chlorophyll content.
Field beans ripen faster and more evenly.
Forecasted yield increase:
|White clover, red clover||10-90%|
Quality from us
Checks on secondary health take place both before and after the move.
Normal strong colonies where about 60 bees/minute fly out on draft.
3/4 Langsroth with 10 frames of adult bees and 6 frames of brood.

We are not responsible if pollination fails due to bad weather.
Professional beekeepers who will obtaining a journeyman's certificate in beekeeping in December 2022.
We move the bee colonies in the evening/night and notify the location to the County Administrative Board.
We have recommended numbers of communities/hectares per specific crop, a financial calculation for the farmer/grower's profitability increase as well as several tips for MAXIMIZING the pollination service which we are happy to send over to you before a joint cultivation visit.
