Virtual Field Day – Optimizing Production @ Online Presentation
Aug 17 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

Good Afternoon

I wanted to make everyone aware of an upcoming ATTTA event which may be of interest.  As part of our ongoing work on pollination education generally and hive strength assessment specifically, we have developed an introductory video related to this subject: Honey Bees as Pollinators: Importance and Determination of Colony Strength.  This video will be launched as part of this summer’s Perennia Virtual Field Days on Tuesday August 17th.  There is no charge to participate in this event but registration is required.

All the best,

Andrew

PRE-REGISTRATION => VIRTUAL FIELD DAY: Optimizing Production – Perennia

==============

Agenda

Honey Bees as Pollinators: Importance and Determination of Colony Strength
Specialist(s): Andrew Beyers, Senior Apiculturist/ATTTA Program Lead and Monica Winkel, Apiculturist

Description: The working relationship between bees and blueberries and their respective beekeepers and blueberry growers has been ongoing for many years. Thousands of honey bee colonies are moved into blueberry fields every year to carry out the task of pollinating flowers and maximizing crop yield. However, honey bees are not the only bee species employed for blueberry pollination- in some fields, bumblebee colonies and alfalfa leafcutter bees are brought in to supplement the pollination workforce. This combination makes for an effective team for blueberry pollination and optimizing pollination success. Join us as we take a closer look at the importance of colony strength as a foundation towards successful wild blueberry pollination.
