Max Armstrong looks at bees and almonds

Max Armstrong shares insight into the value of bees to pollinate almonds. In California, almonds are a critical crop that relies on bees to be productive. This is an annual worry, and usually the beekeepers deliver. The next worry is all that rain that's been hitting the almond-growing region. And he shares information about an issue many farmers may not have considered when bees are needed.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
