Study of managed bees and Kenyan strawberries

A recently published study about managed bees showcases their role as pollinators and vectors of biocontrol agents in strawberry plantations in Kenya. Kenyan researchers carried out a comparative study between strawberry plantations with managed bees and with the regular farmer practices. This study observed that the managed bees proved effective in increasing the quality, yield and vectoring the control against grey mold disease. 

This project was supported by IUBS through a project operated by Arthur Dobbs Institute under the Scientific Programme of   'Agroecosystems and Managed Pollinators'.

Workshop on Managed Pollinators

Ecological Intensification in Agroecosystems: Application of managed pollinators to crop protection and production

We propose an initial Interdisciplinary workshop to assemble an international team of experts to address how to transfer this successful technology to crops around the world and to provide a win-win situation for growers from cottage industry to large scale plantations. A special working group is being organized within the ICPPR to allow effective communication worldwide.
