MEAD, Neb. (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
In an effort to foster education and collaboration between growers and beekeepers, the Bayer Bee Care Program will travel to the University of Nebraska on April 1 as it continues its Bee Care Tour throughout the Midwest. Held at the University of Nebraska Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead, the event will bring together leading researchers and beekeepers to promote science-based solutions aimed at improving honey bee health. The event will arm growers with top stewardship practices and will host a presentation from Dr. Marion Ellis on "Pollination and Honey Bee Health."
“Ongoing collaboration with partners and stakeholders is essential to advancing sustainable solutions for honey bee health in Nebraska,” said Dr. Ellis, University of Nebraska apiculture specialist. “Through the mobile Bee Care Tour, Bayer is able to foster interaction directly with supporters of bee health in Nebraska to heighten discussion, increase awareness and encourage the sharing of ideas.”
The Tour will bring a specially-wrapped vehicle along with an interactive exhibit to provide stewardship workshops and expert presentations on issues impacting honey bee health to the Nebraska community. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to become a champion for bee health, a Bayer initiative encouraging stakeholders to make pollinator health and stewardship a priority when planting.
