Bees and Agriculture

Agriculture depends on pollination. Many crops need bees, both managed and non-managed species, for higher crop yield and quality. Crop pollination is an essential ecosystem service, contributing to human food production and security. On the one hand, the need for crop pollination services is increasing worldwide. On the other hand, agricultural practices often are a risk for bees and other pollinators.

In recent years, risk assessment tries to meet increasingly the complex biology of pollinators. Most requirements refer to honey bees (Apis mellifera). In addition, also non-managed bees are getting into focus. BeeSafe assists you by specialized services: finding data gaps, study planning or the work in the field. Consulting on risk mitigation measures, stewardship programs and stakeholder communication complete the services of BeeSafe.

My incentive is to find solutions for bees in agricultural landscapes – please ask me for more information on your specific questions.
