Bayer Bee Care Program
Think about the last time you enjoyed your morning cup of coffee or an afternoon snack of chips and some delightful guacamole. Now imagine those moments without coffee beans or avocados.
About one-third of all the crops consumed in the United States come from insect-pollinated plants, and honey bees are responsible for 80 percent of that pollination.
Bees play a vital role in our agricultural system, making the care and protection of bees critical to the future of our planet’s food security. Bayer has dedicated 25 years to ensuring the protection of bees through its Bee Care Program.
Bayer’s Bee Care Program brings our extensive experience and knowledge in bee health under a coordinated global initiative. The program includes dedicated Bayer Bee Care Centers in the U.S. and Europe, ongoing bee health research and engagement with key stakeholders about topics such as product stewardship and biodiversity.
Our Bee Care Program includes:
* Fostering discussion and sharing new ideas with beekeepers, growers and others interested in engaging in the conversation on bee health
* Building on more than 25 years of providing products to combat bee diseases with new research and development
* Working with partners to develop new technologies to support product stewardship and sustainable agriculture
* Collaborating with universities and researchers to jointly develop sustainable solutions for honey bee health
