Bayer CropScience Presents on Bee Health and Stewardship at International Pollinator Conference
Date:8/15/2013

new lubricant by its scientists, which reduces dust levels from treated seeds during planting. The fluency agent mitigates potential exposure to bees while promoting best management practices for seed treatment applicators, growers and beekeepers. The use of lubricants, such as talc or graphite, is a standard recommendation by seed planter manufacturers to reduce friction and improve planting uniformity, but recent scientific publications on this topic have triggered a debate as to the relationship between the exposure of dust from these planters and potential acute effects on bees. During laboratory tests, the fluency agent reduced dust exposure up to 90 percent compared to talc and 60 percent compared to graphite.

For more than 25 years, Bayer has been actively involved in finding solutions to improve honey bee health and this effort continues. In May, Bayer broke ground on its North American Bee Care Center, which will serve as a gathering place for researchers, bee experts, students and other visitors to meet regularly with leading Bayer scientists on issues involving bee health. Earlier this year, Bayer conducted a mobile Bee Care Tour, a six-state, 2,000-mile tour to university agriculture schools to provide best management and stewardship practices when planting treated seed to growers, beekeepers and others. More than 2,000 people visited the Bayer mobile bee care exhibit.

Bayer is dedicated to crop protection and is committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable agricultural practices, including the protection of beneficial insects such as honey bees.
