Welcome to the AgriFutures Honey Bee & Pollination Program 2024 Research, Development and Extension Snapshot.

From a single-shot vaccine to conquer American and European foulbrood to a comparative list of the factors that make Australian honey so unique, this RD&E Snapshot showcases the innovative research underway to support the productivity, profitability and sustainability of the Australian honey bee and pollination industry.

While the suite of articles provides an informative overview of how this research will deliver real outcomes for beekeepers and the wider industry, it is only one of the many communications platforms available to help us spread the word.

As American psychologist and writer Anne Roe said, “Nothing in science has any value to society if it is not communicated.” That is exactly what we’re aiming to achieve at AgriFutures Australia – the real value from our investments in research for the honey bee and pollination industry will be realised when it is placed in the hands of beekeepers with the steps to apply the results in a practical and meaningful way.
