I was interested to learn the tip you talked about, that by planting wild flowers along the edge of your crop field will help bees be attracted to the land which can then benefit your crops. Wildflower seeds are probably pretty inexpensive which is great in trying to better your crops. People probably have the thought that wildflowers are annoying and keep producing, but I think that farmers could definitely benefit from having some on their land.

Hello, I am a university student and I am doing an essay on wildflower integration in crops to improve biodiversity in agriculture systems. I am also going to discuss its other benefits. I was wondering if you had any recommended scholarly sources?  
Thank you kindly
