Now Every Beekeeper Can BeeConnected
BeeConnected, the new web-based communication system between farmers and beekeepers is now open to all beekeepers to register and to receive alerts from local farmers of insecticide spraying events.
BeeConnected is a nationwide initiative that provides a more efficient and effective way for farmers to inform beekeepers of their intention to apply an insecticide.
Alerts from farmers will tell local beekeepers by email:
- when spraying will occur
- the crop being treated
- the compound being applied
- and enable appropriate mitigating action to be taken
In addition to receiving accurate and up to date information of a spray event happening in the area BeeConnected provides direct contact from local farmers and provides the opportunity to establish a relationship with local farmers.
BeeConnected in a joint venture under the Voluntarily Initiative between the BBKA, National Farmers Union and Crop Protection Association.
