Going rates for crop pollination?
« on: October 17, 2011, 06:39:56 PM »
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.

Yeah that's my thoughts too - but how much? that's what i'm wondering... i don't want to go in and say $70 a hive if the industry rate is $50 per hive
