This data set includes results from a comparison of honey bee health, population growth and productivity for apiaries kept at farms with prairie strips and farms without prairie strips. This includes data collected over three years (2017-2020) and multiple farms within each year.

A set of seven separate data files was obtained for this research. Seven corresponding codebooks are included to define and describe the variables, abbreviations, units, and additional information for those data files.

This data set supports the dissertation:
