Bees

Description: Photograph of Claude Webb, and K.C. Bennett, SCS Representative, proudly display a few bees from the 70 bee hives on the Webb farm. Bees are a most important factor in the pollination of soil conservation legumes. This is a very economical way, according to K.C. Bennet, to get more and better returns from legumes in a planned soil and moisture program. Bees feed on vetch, sweet clover, peach and other blossoms on the Webb farm. Webb sold around $500.00 worth of honey last year.
