T he ABA Pollination Committee has guided the development of a series of publications to actively promote honey bee best management practices for growers to maximise the benefits from honey bee pollination while preserving the health of hives during their short stay in the orchard. As we learn more from our research investment, we will update the ABA Honey Bee Best Management Practices guidelines for Australian almond pollination stakeholders. The ABA is also encouraging growers to complete a survey which covers various aspects of your farming environment for honey bees during the pollination season. By completing this survey, you will be contributing towards an understanding of our industry’s practices in relation to bee management and effective pollination practices.
