dc.description.abstract This report explores the relationship between buckwheat and honeybees in order to synchronize with the pollination of cucurbits and improve cucurbit quality. The objective of this study was to determine the population dynamics of honeybees and the the relationship between the buckwheat and honeybees as the buckwheat matures in order to improve the synchronization of increased pollinator population with the pollination period of the crop.
