Bee forage map
« on: July 07, 2013, 01:11:34 PM »
 Found this link today on fb. Interesting info, seasoned beeks may already know this but it's new to me:)

Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

the only real problem is :"This output was derived from Ayers and Harman, Chapter 11 (Bee Forage of North America and the Potential for Planting for Bees) of The Hive and the Honey Bee, 1992, Graham, J. ed. Dadant and Sons Inc. Hamilton, Illinois."....1992 is quite a long time ago...way different growing patterns now by agriculture for sure. we are talking 21 years ago at least.
