Bees play a vital role in agriculture, gardens and the food supply across the United States. The Bayer Bee Care Program was established to find solutions to bee health challenges and has been committed to honey bee health for over 25 years! Bayer has established two Bee Care Centers dedicated to improving the understanding and health of pollinators, one at the Bayer CropScience global headquarters in Monheim, Germany, and the other at their North American headquarters in Research Triangle Park (RTP). The RTP center includes a full laboratory and research apiary, as well as honey extraction and workshop space needed to conduct bee health research.
Bayer’s Bee Care Program encompasses the following:
· Fosters discussion and sharing of new ideas with beekeepers, growers and others interested in engaging in the conversation on bee health
· Builds on more than 25 years of providing products to combat bee diseases with an increased focus on research and development
· Works with partners to develop new technologies to support product stewardship and sustainable agriculture
· Collaborates with universities and researchers to jointly develop sustainable solutions for bee health
This event will not disappoint and space is limited so register today!
