About this book

2015 reprint of this 1986 book. For beekeepers to be able now to rely, for an indefinite number of years to come, upon the regular annual availability, in May and June, of a huge new nectar source in the form of oilseed rape, is for them an historic advance. The pattern of working through the beekeeping year is changed by it and a new yearly flow of nectar and honey is in prospect with a yield comparable to that from the heather. This volume is essential reading for all those within flying distance of the rape fields or who are considering taking their bees to the rape.
