This summer, the National Association of Wheat Growers officially joined the Honey Bee Health Coalition, a group working collaboratively to implement solutions that will help achieve a healthy population of honey bees–both native and managed pollinators–in the contest of productive agricultural systems and thriving ecosystems.
With the ongoing conversations around the country regarding pollinator health and crop protection tools, this forum allows all members to work collaboratively to address ongoing policy discussions.
HBHC developed a Bee Healthy Roadmap, creating goals around hive management, nutrition and forage, crop protection management and outreach, education and communication.
Other members include other grower groups, conservation groups, beekeepers, researches, agribusinesses and government agencies.
