Research Focus

This project’s focus is to test the effect of bees on soybean fruiting characteristics and yield.


Investigate whether or not honeybees might be helpful to increasing the number of pods that are kept on soybeans.


Results will be updated once the project is completed.


This will allow farmers to know whether honeybees could be helpful in increasing the soybean yield.
