Plan Bee is a national program designed to boost the quality of Australia’s honey bee stocks through genetic improvement. Researchers participating in the program have been working hard to build a national database of our genetic pool, an activity that has seen breeders from all major beekeeping states submit data into the program.

Plan Bee is also focused on ensuring all Australian beekeepers and breeders have the tools and know-how to forge their own path with genetic selection.
