Was offered to put some bees on 3 acres of blueberries in southeast louisiana and was wondering if any of you worked bluberries, how many for 3 acres and what kind of production I would expect?

can't answer your questions, but they do really like the blueberries.  we have some and my neighbor has a u-pick field.  our blueberry production has been up a lot since since i started keeping bees!  for me, it's a good source because they bloom after the raspberries and before the blackberries.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I keep about a dozen hives at the most here at the house year to year and we have a couple hundred bushes out.   Remember there is a lot blooming out at the same time as the berries.

One of the "you pick em" blueberry farms near Tyler told me that with such a mild winter last year - they their blueberries were blooming in January - and they called in local beekeepers to place hives in January!  I don't know at what rate per acre, though...
