BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says an additional $100,000 is being made available to boost the honeybee industry.
The money is from honey assessments on bee colonies. Goehring says the state Agriculture Department is seeking grant proposals for honeybee research, education, outreach and promotion projects.
The deadline to apply is Nov. 5.
North Dakota leads the nation in honey, producing nearly one-fourth of the country's crop.
