Bayer CropScience Bee Care Tour Stops in Iowa
Date:3/28/2013

AMES, Iowa (PRWEB) March 28, 2013

In an effort to foster education and collaboration between growers and beekeepers, the Bayer Bee Care Program will travel to Iowa State University on March 28 as it continues its Bee Care Tour throughout the Midwest. Held at the Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa, 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 a panel of speakers from Iowa State University including Assistant Professor Dr. Amy Toth; Assistant Professor Dr. Matt O’Neal; and Extension Program Specialist Elizabeth Buffington. The panel will be moderated by Dennis Scott, Bayer CropScience SeedGrowth Products principal.

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 Iowa 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.

Specifically the Tour:

  •     Provides information on the vital role honey bees play in sustainable agriculture and our food supply;
  •     Raises awareness of the health challenges currently impacting honey bee populations;
  •     Fosters collaboration among growers, beekeepers and other stakeholders to promote bee health.

The Bee Care Tour is traveling to university agriculture schools and farm communities across Corn Belt states over the next two months. Additional Tour stops have included Commodity Classic in Orlando and The Ohio State University in Wooster. Upcoming stops include the University of Illinois in Urbana, The University of Nebraska in Lincoln and University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

The Tour is part of Bayer’s overall Bee Care Program and commitment to honey bee health. The Program, which includes initiatives such as Bayer’s global Bee Care Centers and honey bee research, brings Bayer’s extensive experience and knowledge in honey bee health under one platform. A Bee Care Center is currently under construction at the North American Bayer CropScience Headquarters at Research Triangle Park, N.C. which will aid the advancement of honey bee research by providing a state-of-the-art research and meeting facility. Additionally, the Program includes Bayer’s Bee Ambassador campaign, a field staff training initiative dedicated to cultivating dialogue and awareness around topics related to honey bee management and health.

"Bayer recognizes the important role of bees in our backyards, our communities, our crop fields and our world,” said Robyn Kneen, Bayer CropScience North America Bee Health project manager. “Through the Tour, we hope to help increase the public’s awareness of the critical need for pollinators to help maintain the world’s food supply.”

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