In this webinar, ERS Economist Jennifer Bond presented findings from the Honey Bees on the Move: From Pollination to Honey Production and Back report. As U.S. growers expand their cultivation of pollinator-dependent crops, including fruits and nuts, an increasing number of honey bee hives are transported around the country to provide pollination services. This report quantifies the seasonal flow of hives around the country and provides evidence of varying levels of intensity of reliance on pollination services by crop and by region.Honey Bees on the Move: From Pollination to Honey Production and Back
