California is the second largest producer of honey in the country. Beekeepers truck 1.5 million bee colonies around the state annually to help pollinate 760,000 acres of almonds and other nut and fruit orchards. In 2010, California bees produced more than 27 million pounds of honey.

With growing consumer interest in the carbon footprints of products and potential cap-and-trade legislation under California Assembly Bill 32, emissions-tracking is becoming increasingly important for agricultural producers.
