close to the hive the bees will
secure their supply close in and
not make the long flight. This
was proven in the Alilam county
observation where it was" dem-
onstrated that the presence of
bees in abundance increased the
seed yield 400 pounds to the acre.
Similar experience has been had
where alfalfa has been harves-
ted for a seed crop.
South Texas Apiaries have in-
dicated their interest in bring-
ing bees into AlcLennan county
for this purpose. Some have been
delivered into the county, but ad-
ditional clover fields may be ser-
viced through this concern. They
prefer localities where as much
as 200 acres of Htibam may be
found within a two or three mile
radius. County Agent Patterson
desires to make contact with Hu-
barn growers who may be in need
of additional bees for polination
