From the paper:
Is that a fair test?
? And why
producing no better yield than.
I looked more closely what they were doing.
At the beginning it is said that it is well known that when bees do not get enough pollen, they start to eate their own larvae to get protein.
Now in this test they want to know, can they feed simply yeast culture to bees and avoid the cannibalization of own larvae.
As far as I understood, bees got white clover pollen from nature at same time.
Their main job was to produce much bees and sell them as package bees. And what is best is to turn yeast to sold bees.
As it was written, they know the old tricks how to use soya, yeast and pollen in feeding.
They have been experienced guys in this job.
This is one example how to use pollen substitute in the environment where pollen is "allways" avaiable.
