Project 2: Flowers for healthy bees in times of pollen dearth

The project aims to improve honey bee health by increasing the availability of nutritious pollen sources by:

  • identifying good Bee Plants that have protein-rich pollen and flower at the right times especially when there is a pollen shortage
  • trialling the use of good Bee Plants that are the most practical plants for farms
  • encouraging farmers to plant good Bee Plants to protect and support bees.
