Abstract

An investigation was conducted during the 1953 season on the value of honeybees for the production of crimson clover seed in the Piedmont section of Georgia. This study was initiated in cooperation with the Coastal Plain Experiment Station to supplement data being obtained from that area of the State. It is generally considered that the honeybee is an important factor in increasing production of seed by this plant. However, there are opinions that bumble-bees and other wild pollinating bees are sufficient in numbers to insure pollination without the trouble or expense of honeybees.
