Hi Everybody,

Just wondering if anybody knows whether there is a reference document or what have you for the going rates for crop pollination? with a particular interest in lucerne at the moment...

Lucerne pollen has very poor nutrition. You would need to charge a bit more than for other crops to compensate for this.
