Pollination Revenue

You may know that bees are responsible for pollinating over $10 billion worth of crops (Robinson & Nowogrodzski, 477), but realize that the beekeepers don't make $10 billion. In 1985-88, only 22% of beekeepers received payment for pollination services (Hoff & Schertz Willett, vii). In 1991-93 the USDA estimated the value of the US honey crop at $121-125 million (Hoff, 3).
