One third of Australian food that ends up on our plate is dependent on honey bee pollination. From almonds to avocados to the meat we eat, honey bees are vital for the pollination and production of many of our favourite foods.
With targeted investment the AgriFutures Honey Bee & Pollination Program supports research, development and extension (RD&E) that ensures a productive, sustainable and profitable beekeeping industry and secure the pollination of Australia’s horticultural and agricultural crops.
