Honey bees play a key role in the pollination of several specialty crops, and on May 24, you can explore best practices for keeping bees healthy and increasing their population.
Colony numbers have changed over time due to several challenges, including parasites, diseases, less genetic diversity, lack of forage diversity, poor bee nutrition, exposure to pesticides and migratory stresses. During out next Lunch & Learn webinar, we will discuss opportunities and comprehensive solutions that are meant to contribute to healthy and increasing bee populations, which will ultimately benefit bees, beekeepers, applicators, producers and consumers.
Stephanie Regagnon, CEO of FieldWatch, will provide an overview of current issues and best practices. She will also cover different stewardship efforts that connect a variety of stakeholders and enhance collaboration and communication.
Don’t miss this opportunity! Join us to hear about this topic and to ask questions.
How are producers, applicators and beekeepers working together?
